And I'M ProudIt doesn't matter to me what other people think, though I do wish they would stop giving teen moms such a hard time. You don't know what they've been through, you don't know their story...so don't assume things. My pregnancy was not planned but it's not about the past. Heck, it's not even about me anymore. It's all about my little girl and her future. I swore to myself the moment I found out that I would be the best mother that I could be, I would give her all the love I am capable of giving. I will make sure that she doesn't grow up the way I did, with a father who was never around and when he was around treated me badly.
Now, at almost 28 weeks, my daughter is everything and I am not ashamed that I'm pregnant at 17. I'm proud to be her mother. I wouldn't want any other daughter but her and I hope that she will feel like she would never want any other mom.
