Teen Pregnancy Stories: Letter 1

I had my daughter when I was 19 and it was a pretty difficult process for me.  I didn’t really know how to deal with the contractions, or what was really going on.  But with the help of my baby’s dad’s mom it got easier.  It got a lot more easier when I got the epidural.  I felt so much better after that.

I am 20 now and my daughter is 1 year and 2 months.  I’m not going to lie, it’s been hard; even with her dad around I feel like I’m a single mom.  At the moment I am attending school and also being a home health nurse for my mom.  It gets frustrating at times with not much help.  But at the end of the day when I get to see her smile, it’s all worthwhile.

I’m glad I went through all of this.  I love being a mom. It’s the best feeling in the world, to have someone love you unconditionally.  I wouldn’t give up my life or my choices for anything.  I love this life.
