    It's A Day By Day Struggle

        The day my daughter was born was both the best and the scariest day of my life. She was little, but healthy. She weighed 6 pounds 10 ounces.  She was beautiful and I loved the fact I could call her mine. The only set back was that I was 16 years old...

    I had my daughter when I was 17 years old.

    Becoming pregnant was just because I didn't use protection but having my daughter wasn't a "mistake". The father of my daughter is married to me and he is a good man. I don't regret my girl in any way, shape or form. <3

    Not Cute

    I was a teen Mom.  I was 18 when I had my first child.  By today's standards, that's really old.  Thirty -six years ago, having a baby as an unwed teen was not the thing to do.  It was so totally not cute.  Now it seems that anything goes.  I see...
