I just found this site and thought I’d introduce myself. I’m Amanda, 22 year old mama to a beautiful 8 month old boy and 21 weeks pregnant with a baby girl due 1/25/07. Though I’m not exactly a teen, I’ve faced alot of opposition in my decision to keep my babies. I got pregnant with my son my junior year of college and gave birth to him 5 days before the start of 2nd semester of my senior year. I went back and graduated in may.. then discovered 5 days later that I was pregnant.. AGAIN. I was urged by alot of people to consider abortion because after all, my son was just 4 months old.. however I stood my ground and decided that i could do this.. no neiether one of my babies were planned,but they are both wanted.. very much so 🙂 I’d love to offer support to any other struggling young mamas 🙂September 16, 2006 at 9:43 pm #11772FrancesBeanMommy
Hi Amanda! Your story is encouraging, as I am currently a sophomore in college, and I’m due on the first day of my spring qtr, in March. I plan on living in the town my school is in year round now so that I can take summer classes and finish as soon as possible. But I’m worried that I won’t be able to find child care while I’m in classes and working, or that I’ll be a bad mom if I have to put my baby in daycare when s/he is just an infant. How did you manage to get everything done while you were in school? *Jaz*September 17, 2006 at 11:50 am #11776lissy012207

Fortunately I had the support of my husband (tho we weren’t married at the time) who lived w/ me, and when he couldnt babysit I brought my son to class w/ me (my profs didnt seem to mind).. but I’m sure that may not be an option at all schools. I also took him with me to the libraries and to required events (including my senior poster presentation) because I had no one to watch him. I encourage you to talk with your instructors.. they may be more accomodating if they know your situation. And also, so not feel like a bad mom if you end up putting your child in daycare.. take heart in knowing your doing the best you can!!September 27, 2006 at 12:35 pm #11984ashmo
