My name is Payton, and I'm 16. I just gave birth to my daughter Annabelle a month ago on December 21. I'm a sinlge Mom, her Dad isn't involved, but knows she's his, and knows everything that went on, and everything that's going on, he chooses not to be here physically (mostly I think it's because were so young, and he's scared) I joined this so I could talk to other teen moms out there, because no one understands your situation unless they're in it. My Mom was a teen mom, but things have changed since then, so she can't really relate completely. I just need somewhere to vent where I won't get the lecture, you know which one I'm talking about "Well you shouldn't have had sex...you should've been safer...this is what you get for having a kid so young...blah blah blah"
