15, Alone, & Pregnant...When I was 15, I got pregnant. It was the first time I had sex, just my luck. I cant say that I regret getting pregnant, because I will never say that my child is a mistake. I love her with all my heart, but it was hard. When my parents found out about it, I was kicked out of the house. I went to a women shelter. I have to say that at that point I felt like I was completely alone, which I was. I made the best of it though. I knew what I had to do to make a life for me and my baby. I had gotten a job and was living on my own with the help of a program for teenage mothers. The father of the child left me, told me that there was no way that the baby was his because he used a condom. I didnt argue with him, my baby didnt need that in their life anyways. I struggled threw my whole pregnancy, trying to get everything the baby need, but I did it. I knew there was other options out there for me, abortion or adoption. I dont believe in abortion, but that is my beliefs I dont judge people on what they decide is right or wrong. I just knew that I couldnt do it. Adoption was something a thought about alot, but I couldnt picture myself handing my baby over to someone else. I fought for my baby. We made it thru. Three years later, we are happy , living on our own with no help from the goverment. I have a job that pays enough for me to support us, and I now am attending night classes at the local college. Everytime things get hard, I remember how hard it was back then and since I made it thru that, I can make it thru anything. Everything that happened to me, only made into a better person.
