15 & Pregnant

I became pregnant after only dating this guy for 2 months, he's 17. He wanted a baby but I wasn't too sure. We always fight over the smallest things but he was so excited when I told him. My family isn't happy at all. My dad wants me to get a abortion & my mom says she doesn't want anything to do with me or the baby if I keep it. My boyfriend doesn't help with the stress, he just seems to add to it. I want to keep this baby but it seems like a lot right now.

How have things turned out, Bella?

Very sorry, wish you were my neighbor so I could mother you a little and help make you stronger. Lots of girls 13 and younger through history have raised many fine adults. Jack Nicholson thought his mother was his sister and his grand mother was his mother. It was 1937 after all. He thanked his mother who was a pregnant young teen for her choice. Those who say a young girl can't be a good mother haven't lived as long as me. Sure there are failures people point at. We are not Prouducts of our environment like they tell us. My advice if you wish to take it is... Grow up and take responsibility for your actions. Don't let them force you or belittle you in to doing any thing you feel is not right. Remember to tell them that you know how old you are. Joan of arch motivated an army of men. Never admit in front of any one that you can't do something you believe in. When you break down and cry, or screw up . Do it in private . Forgive your self and show a strong face in public. Tell the truth to their face with out flinching . Raising a child is a hero size job . Are you ready? Marymarthazetta.

You are still a child yourself but good luck to whatever you decide to do. Think about your future.

You have to do what is right for you. It is your body, your choice, your life. 17 year old will not be around forever. You now have to grow up fast and make a decision that will change the direction of your life. Also: USE A CONDOM

I am so sorry; you are so young to go through this! At 15 you really cant raise a child on your own, especially without support. I cannot tell you what is the right thing to do however; you must consider everything that is involved as a parent. Good luck to you and God bless.
