Hi my name is rochelle all my friends call me chelle i am also a tennage mother. At the age of 14 i learned i was 4 months pregnant. My first thought was that it couldn't be true. But of course the doctor wasn't liening. At the time that was the most devasting news i had ever heard. My mama was with me when i found out and her expression was over a million words. And of course her most famous expression was dissapointment. My baby father wasn't anywhere around he had left town and i was all alone. When he came back i was six months pregnant and he didnt believe me. He argued with me and tried to fight me and said my baby wasn't his. I cried almost every night of my pregnancy and was all alone. My mom wasnt there for me she put me down alot during my pregancy and talked about me. I guessed it was just her way of dealing with it. During the whole 9 months of my pregnancy life was horrible i had no support group. It was just me and my unborn child. To make a long story shorter on June 11, 2006 at 3:49 p.m. after 12 hours and 49 minutes of labor, I gave birth to my beautiful daughter Kaliya'. After I had her life didnt get better because after you have a child theres a reality check to come along and a lot of life learned lesson. But now things are going good for me. I'm working Kaliya' is in childcare and I am in my senior year of high school. Her father is still a pain in the butt and still isnt any help. But hay I made it this far without him so I know the sky is the limit. To all the other tennage mothers out there I'm 17 years old and doing it on my own if I can do it I know you can to. All it takes is faith strength and courage.
