My name is Aurora and I'm 19 years old. and I just finished my freshman year of college. I have been dating my boyfriend Michael close to a year now. Our relationship was not going well so I had to end it. A couple days later I found out I was pregnant. I told him about it and we decided to give it another try. My parents recently found out that I'm pregnant and they kicked me out. They said that they want absolutely nothing to do with me. Right now I'm living in a motel for a couple days and might have an apartment by next week. I am not really sure about how I am feeling about this baby. I feel so confused with friends telling me I'm too young for a child. I know I have options but I have no idea what to do. I was hoping someone could give me some advice. I want this child but I am really scared. I feel like I'm not ready and would hate not to be able to give the baby everything it needs. I am really stressed out thinking about so many different things. What hurts the most is I feel like this is all my fault. I know it is. I feel like I had everything and messed it all up. I was suppose to take things step by step and I jumped ahead. It really hurts knowing that my parents worked so hard to give me everything and I'm a disappointment to my mom. I know having this baby I will have to put my studies aside. I feel like my dreams in having a profession are too far to reach. Their was so much more I had planned and I know becoming a mother it will be difficult. I am also worried that things between Michael and I will not work. I really want my baby to have a father. I know many woman raise their children by themselves because my mother did that with my brother and I. But inside me I always had that hope of not having it be the same. I could really use opinions on my situation or hear other stories of other mothers and how they have overcome these situations.
