Is This The Right Time

Bren - August 4

Okay, so I was the product of two teenaged parents (who did get married and stayed together until i was around 16 years old) and I made a vow never to have children until I could provide everything in the world for them. I am now 21, in a long term relationship and i've completed 3 years of college so far (i work too). I'm not sure if i want to finish up this year, or take a year off. My boyfriend is 26, works full time and goes to school. Right now, i think we made a boo-boo a few nights ago, but its too early to tell yet. So my question is, if I actually am pregnant is this the right time? I know I could physically care for the child, but I always had these ideals of being financially secure and having this storybook birth. I'm definately not dest_tute, but the money that i was hoping to pay back my loans would ultimately wind up being spent to pay for the baby. I dont want to have a baby for the wrong reasons, but something is making it really hard for me to make any other decision. Things will be tight for a moment, we have enough space (again, right now) and the resources to provide, but i'm focusing on bringing a life into the world. I know i need to think years ahead. Any insight would be appreciated.
