So, what I wanted to say to any girl who is pregnant and in uncertain times, struggling or afraid is that their babies are beautiful and precious! If anyone is worried that they are somehow less beautiful inside or less desirable to good guys because they have had a baby so young,
Hey Becky — First, I want to thank you for your site. I’m grateful that you are helping to inform girls about their pregnancies and their babies. I hope your site brings much help to many.
The main reason I’m writing is to give you a quick word of encouragement for any of
the girls out there who are having a tough time dealing with being teen or unmarried
moms. If it’s helpful, please feel free to share this sentiment with anyone who might get encouragement from it.
I just graduated from college (May ’05) and married my terrific wife a week later — she’s the one who sent me this URL; she knows that this is a topic close to my heart. We’ve been married just over six months now and things are going very well. We found out a short while ago that we are pregnant with our first baby! We are thrilled to know that the little kid on the way will be pattering around in a couple of years and we’re praying that we’ll be good parents. I adore my wife and I am thrilled that we’re having a baby together.
So, what I wanted to say to any girl who is pregnant and in uncertain times, struggling or afraid is that their babies are beautiful and precious! If anyone is worried that they are somehow less beautiful inside or less desirable to good guys because they have had a baby so young, I want to encourage them that there are a ton of guys out there (like me) who will not think ANY less about them! We (speaking for good, kind, loving, stable, and worthwhile guys) will love them for who they are and will love their kids as our own because the kids came from them.
Don’t be discouraged! Some guys might be a little too uncomfortable with it, but a whole lot of us are would not be bothered at all.
Thanks, Becky, for your site. Let me know if there’s anything I might be
able to do to help you (volunteer labor or anything). If I’m able, I will!

Dear Sir Robert — hello! I am Lisa and I help Becky at the Stand Up Girl website with some of her e-mails.
You know what? I received an e-mail just this morning from a girl who was worried that if she had her baby that she would never find a man to love her. I knew that was just her fear speaking – but you are right. There are so many girls out there who are afraid that they will never meet a man that will love her because she has a baby. I love what you said and girls all over the globe truly need to hear from a Stand Up Guy too!
Just so you know – the girl I spoke to you about earlier decided that she is going to keep her baby and we are both overjoyed!
Thank you so much for being willing to be a Stand Up Guy and to tell girls that really need to hear the hope, that it really is possible to have someone love you. Even with a child …
Luv Lisa |
