I got pregent when my my dad's friend raped me one night when they were getting drunk. I was 14 years old. My dad didn't believe me. and my mom wasn't home at the time. But I knew i had to do something. So when my dad's friend was over about 3 months after I had my little girl, after there night of drinking he pa__sed out and I cut a piece of hair from his head. I then sent it out with some of the money i was saving for school before this all happened and got a Dna test that proved he was the father. With this I went to my police and he was put away for rape. My daughter just turned a year old and I am now living with my mom. she kicked my dad out. She works hard to help me be able to go to school. I am in my sophomore year of high school. and I am looking for ways to attend the local community college. My life has changed dramatically but it was for the better. I love my daugther more then anything. and I plan on not being on welfare when i grow up. I plan on doing all i can for me and my little family...and that is my story <3
