I gave birth to my first child when i was 11yrs old. The baby's father was much older and afraid of being arrested so i was left completely on my own. A lot of people encouraged me to have an abortion, but i couldn't imagine throwing away such a precious gift. I raised him on my own with very little help. I took jobs under the table until i was legally able to work at 15. I moved out on my own that same year. I graduated at 17 and went straight to college. I graduated from college with my bachelors degree two years ago. It wasn't easy being a young single mom, but i never regretted my decision to become a mom. The picture above is of me holding my granddaughter who wouldn't be here today if i had listened to others and aborted my son!
