I've known this boy my whole life, since I was about 5 years old and he is a year younger than me. We went to school together, our families are good friends, and we were practically like brother and sister growing up. When I was 16, he and him (his name is Daniel) went to a party with a bunch of our friends and I wanted to talk to this guy I had a crush on. Daniel didn't want me to go near him because he didn't like him at all and said he was trouble, but I didn't listen. I told this guy that I liked him and he actually blurted it out to everyone and humiliated me. I was crying and scared, and Daniel came to my rescue to take me away. He drove me home and come to find that my parents weren't home. I was so angry and sad that I couldn't move, and Daniel hugged me and told me how much he loved me. At that moment, I realized that I loved too. We ended up kissing and sleeping together that night.
Two months later, I found out I was pregnant and afraid to tell my parents. I told Daniel first and he was there with me when I took the test. He pulled me into my arms and told me that he didn't mean for this to happen but would support any decision I made. Instead, I asked him what did he want to do, and after a while, he said he wanted the baby. I wanted to keep it too because I felt it was the right thing to do. The next day, we gathered our parents together and told them, and they freaked out. My parents said they would support me no matter what but his were very angry and told me that I better have an abortion or else it would ruin their son's future. I broke up with Daniel because I didn't want to come between him and his goals, and he was devastated. For a few months, we rarely saw each other because his parents wouldn't let us but we messaged each other on facebook daily and he asked me to let him know how the baby was doing. At my 20 week scan, I found out we were having a girl. My closest girlfriends insisted on throwing me a baby shower but I was so depressed of the situation that I kept saying no, but my parents surprised me by buying everything my baby needed and decorated the guest room into an all pink nursery. When I was six months pregnant, I was surprised to find Daniel at my front door at 8:00 in the morning with flowers and a bag of presents for the baby. He told me that no matter what anyone said, he was going to be there for me and he was our daughter's father forever. I happily took him back, and my parents allowed him to move with me after his parents kicked him out.
Our daughter, Lillian Marie, was born on October 4, 2011, four months after my 17th birthday and three months after Daniel's 16th birthday. She had light brown hair like me and blue eyes like Daniel, and was a precious little angel. I graduated from high school the following May with Daniel who had managed to finish school a year early so he can work and go to college and be with us at home. We both went to college and have good jobs that make us enough money to buy our first house with 3 bedrooms and a big backyard for our children (we have a new baby named Lucas who is 3-months-old).Sure there are tough times but there are more good times and wouldn't want my life any other way.
My life changed forevern 2009, when I was 14 (almost 15), I met this guy at school who had just moved to my hometown. He was tall, popular, smart, and incredibly cute. I was shy and really quiet, and dint have many friends besides my best friend. Me and this guy, Derek, became fast friends when we learned we had so many things in common but we didn't start dating until two months later. I got a lot of hateful looks from other girls who liked Derek but I didn't care, because he liked only me. We dated for almost 3 years, we held back on sex because I was waiting until marriage and he respected that. But in September 2012, I was 17, we went on a camping trip with some of our friends. One night, we were sitting in the living room of our cabin after everyone went to sleep and we starting making out. He pulled back and said he wouldn't do anything unless I was ready. At that moment, I threw everything away and one thing led to another. It was awkward afterwards, but I thought it was perfect.
Nearly 6 weeks later, I started to get really sick and tired. I took a test, which came out as positive. My family doesn't believe in abortions but if someone in my family got pregnant at a young age, adoption was the best choice. I called Derek for him to meet me at my house and I told him once he got there. He responded by hugging me and comforting me as I was crying so hard, and told me it was going to be okay. We told both of our parents that night and they were disappointed, but supportive. Both sides wanted us to look into adoption, but said it was our decision. A couple of weeks went by as everyone at school found out. Our friends were supportive and Derek was there to help me when I got looks from some people. Derek told me he was going to be there for me and the baby.
At four months, I decided I wanted to put the baby up for adoption but Derek was against it and said he wanted me to keep the baby. Even his parents sided with him and offered to help me in any way they can, but my parents felt adoption was best for everyone. We found out we were having a boy, and Derek was really excited. I was still set on adoption and wanted my son to have the best life he could possibly have. I met a few potential adoptive parents before I met one couple I really liked John and Demi (not real names). They had tried to have a baby for 3 years and tried to adopt for another 2 years, and I felt they were the perfect parents for the baby. Derek liked them too but he made his intents clear and when I was 8 months pregnant, they backed out because they were afraid of getting in a custody battle. I was so angry at Derek that I didn't talk to him for a week. Derek said he didn't want anyone taking our baby and begged me to change my mind. By then, my parents saw Derek's determination; he got a job and was saving money for the baby, and told me they would help if I changed my mind.
On June 7, 2013, I gave birth to a healthy boy. I was amazed to see Derek, who was with me throughout it all, cry and was the first one to hold him. I was unsure of what I should do, even after seeing my beautiful baby, I didn't know if I could go through with giving him up. My mom came in to tell me that she couldn't imagine me giving away her first grandchild and she was afraid I would regret my decision. I gave in and admitted that I was afraid I would mess up as a mother. I told Derek I was keeping the baby and he was so happy he leapt into my arms and kissed all over my face. We decided to name our son Blake Alexander. He is now 2-years-old, is very smart and talkative. Me and Derek got married when Blake was 3-months-old and we live in a nice apartment. We are as happy as ever and I am glad I changed my mind.
True loveHello my names lizzie, just wanted to share my story(:
I was 16 when i met my bf in highschool, he was 14 goin on 15 (freshman year) We fell in love & got together. We had an amazing bond, we were unseperable. We would have unprotected sex on most weekends but never got pregnant, now we are seniors in highschool & i ended up pregnant the first month of my senior year, we were happy ! We are still together & going strong, im only 13 weeks along so dont know the gender yet BUT we'll be moving in together & possibly get married, our love is so strong. Thank god hes mine <3 You just have to choose the right guy, GL !
Pregnancy test is positive- So am II met an amazing guy in July. He sent me meals and roses to work, and we spent hours talking about the world today and different perspectives (smart guy!). It also happened to be the month of my 21st birthday. OF COURSE we had unprotected sex. A few weeks later I saw the faint positive test. We were actually both really excited (on top of being scared). However, we waited just in case and it turns out I miscarried. Now in September I am pregnant again. This time the line was strong! I'm guessing I'm somewhere about three weeks in. I've only told my boss who is very supportive. She shared her experiences, and that gave me confidence that this time it'll work out. Baby daddy and I are currently (happily) living together, and making plans past my graduation from college in a year and a half.
scaredHi I'm emiley I'm 17 years old. Today I told my mom I was pregnant. My parents are divorced so my mom came over as soon as possible and we made a appointment so I can go to plain parent hood. She told my dad and I was very surprised because they did yell at me. My mom doesn't support me at all and says if I keep it then she's not gonna help at all and that brakes my heart but also understandable considering its my baby not hers. And my dad supports whatever choice I make. I'm scared and I'm even scared because my boyfriend of three years says I should get a abortion and doesn't support my choice of keeping it. I don't know what to do and I feel so alone. I also feel like a loser cause I just quit my job because they where ripping me off bit I have been looking for a new job because I love work it helps my depression. I feel so alone and I need to talk to someone who understands thank you.
