I am 18 years old from the island of St.Lucia in the Caribbean. Last year 2008 in December i found out i was 6 weeks pregnant. I was devastated, afraid, confused and broken. But despite my news i knew there was another human inside me maybe feeling the same way. Not knowing what her/his future holds and at that point i knew that this was my decision i had to face, and i had to do the right thing which was to give life. Now I'm 39 weeks pregnant today, the 3rd of August 2009. with a baby girl. And although it hasn't been easy, she has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. I made the right choice for both of us. A nd i just couldn't do it without the support of my mom, who has been by my side the whole time as my doctor,my sister,my best friend, my boyfriend and best friend Jeannewho has help me all the way and my aunts who check on me all the time. My obgyn and his secretary'aunty sicky'.They have been my support system through the end and in time to come.
