I got pregnant when I was 17 by a guy I hardly knew.  Two weeks after I found out about my baby, he left and I havent seen him since. I eventually started dating a wonderful guys when I was 4 months pregnant.  We were together for a year, then things unfortunately didn’t work out. My preganancy was full of tears, doubt joy and fear. My parents wanted me to get an abortion “to help my future becasue I was setting myself up for failure by having a baby” I researched all my options. I looked at the abortion clinic websites and everytime i opened it, I felt sick and knew that wasnt right for me. I then researched adoption profiles on the Bethany website, but just knw that wasnt right for me either. So I knew that God intended me to keep this baby, because she needed her mommy as much as her mommy needed her!

I had my daughter Cadence, July 31, 2009 at 12:38 a.m. She weighed 6 lbs. 5 oz. She is eight months old now and recently learned to crawl. She is saying baba, mama, dada and said Hi once! Everytime she smiles I cant help but smile too! She makes every day worth living! It amazes me that this little person is completely dependant on me for her very life! When she holds my hand, I feel like nothing can ever go wrong! I have a living angel in my arms everynight and thank God that she is here with me! I don’t know where I’d be without her!

Oh and by the way! I finished school and graduated before my graduating class did! My daughter gave me more motivation that anyone ever could! I will be attending college next winter and studying to become a biotechnology technician! So theres to everyone that told me I couldnt do it! Theres to everyone who said i was going to fail in life and theres to everyone who judged me and every other young mother just for having a blessing! Just because I had a baby doesnt mean I’m stupid!
anyways enough ranting for tonight!
