I'm so sick of hearing that a teen can't raise a baby. I was 18 when I had my first and i still plan to have more.I know in my heart that i can raise my son no matter what people say. We might be young or still be a baby ourselves, but we can do this. So STOP telling us we're to young!!!

Feb. 2, 2008 at 2:11 PM I too was a teen mom. My son is now 16 years old. He just graduated early and is going to college. He has never been into drugs or alcohol, and is just in overall great kid. I also had 2 more children with another man (not my boy's dad), and they all are fine. Other then it not working out with my son's father I have no regrets at all. I never have been on welfare or depended on my family for financial support. I to heard all the time you will never make it and I was screwing up my baby's life. I proved them all wrong though. I don't want you to think it was a walk in the park...there was always hard times and still is. But I have a well rounded, smart, and great family and did it all at 16. Just do what is right in your heart and never let anyone discourage you. Ever need to talk, look me up and drop me a line. GOODLUCK TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.
