Hello everyone. This is my very first blog on Stand Up Girl. I don't even know if anyone's going to ever read this but I'll write it anyways.

I'm 18 years old and I live in Jersey. I'm a college student. Right now I'm single and looking for that "right" person… whatever that means. I've always been "little miss independent" and now I'm ready to let my guard down and let people into my life.

By this point I guess a lot of you are wondering what I'm doing on this site. Clearly this site is for teen mothers or soon-to-be moms. Well I don't really know what I'm doing here either. It's just that for a long time now I've been dreaming about becoming a mother and I can't really shake off the thought. I've spent all my life around children and I just can't wait to have some of my own. I can only imagine what it feels like to create a life and then to hold that life in your arms. There's nothing greater or more amazing than that. Well I'm still young and I'm in no rush to do anything but I would definitely like to have my first child by the time I'm 23. I don't think being a young mother makes you a bad mother. My grandmother had my mom when she was 16 and she was an amazing mother and she had 7 more children before reaching 30 and they all tearned out great. They all went to college and have good jobs so it's possible. I commend all you young mothers out there for choosing to raise your children.
