Advice From Someone That Has Been There

Been there - January 11

I have tried to post some responses to your questions but for some reason it won't let me. I just wanted to give some encouragement and advice to those who feel desperate! I was 20 when I got pregnant with my daughter (she is now 7) and it seemed the whole world was against me. I had an abortion when I was 18 and knew I couldn't do it again. My parents kicked me out, he turned his back on me and I had to live in a homeless shelter for unwed mothers. But, I did it because I knew I loved my child even before I knew her. It was not easy, but I dug my heels in and put my life back together! My parents finally came around and so did he (much later). I went back to college and made a life for my daughter and I. It won't be an easy task, but it will be the most rewarding. A girl that I worked with at the time gave me the best advice, she said "Don't let anyone make this decision for you, they will not be the ones getting up in the middle of the night nor changing the diapers, and they will not be the ones laying on the table getting the abortion". This is the same advice I give to you women. God has given us the gift of bearing the children because we are the stronger s_x, God will never give u more than u can handle. Be strong ladies, do what u feel is right and goodluck!


kasey - January 28

i am 7 months pregnany in my second year of college and im almost 20. At first i was hesitant to go back to school for the semester that i was going to have a baby but i didn't want to fall behind. I feel like everyone is staring at me and judging me and i feel very uncomfortable. I am also having trouble telling my manager at work that i will need time off b/c of my pregnancy. Im sure she already knows but i don't know why im not comfortable talking about my pregnancy with other people when im excited about it.
