StandUpGirl girl laying down holds pregnancy test


Dear Becky,

I want to share my story with you. I found out I was pregnant when I was 15 years old. I was only in 9th grade. When I told my boyfriend that I was pregnant he said “It’s Not Mine.” Knowing that it was his because he was the only one I have had sex with, I lost my virginity to him. So of course it was his.

I didn’t know what I was going to do or how to tell my mom. My mom freaked out on me but we got through it.

I am now 19 years old and have a 2 year old daughter. I remained in school and raised my daughter all on my own because my boyfriend left the state when he found out I was pregnant. I graduate at semester and I’m the top of my class! I’m starting college in January, I’m going into the Cosematology field.

I’ve been through a lot in the past two years but I am still doing it on my own and i’m very very proud of myself for that.
