    Never Had a Chance

    She had my baby when we were both 16. Right away she saw "the kid" as a burden on her lifestyle. After all, cheerleading practice and hanging at the mall were much more important than her own son, weren't they? Shallow *****. The only thing I ever saw in her was how she...
