Dear Becky — I’m Nikki. Here I am 15 years old and 2 months pregnant.I’m a mere child bearing a child….and so the question arises….what next? I don’t even know how to answer that myself but in time God will tell me. Abortion is not an option for me, nor is adoption. I can’t accept killing a person, a person that is a part of me…and I can’t accept someone else taking my own child. So I’ve made the decision, my baby is here to stay.

I have a simple question for older mothers out there…….Why must teen mothers be a site for critism? I can honestly say that I and many others can take better care of our children than many 30 year olds. So why put us down….why shatter us….why tell us our children are a mistake and always will be?
In my eyes, no child is a mistake. They may not be planned but they are NEVER a mistake. Every child put on this planet is heaven sent no matter what age, race, or religion they are born to.
I became pregnant (unexpectedly) on the 18th of October. My boyfriend and I were having a little harmless sex……safely……or is there really such a thing as “safe sex”? Apparently not. The life within me is a pure angel nothing less than Heaven Sent. I will have nobody tell me my child is a mistake. Everything happens for a reason….yes I will admit I do not know the reason but in time I will. God gave me this child as a gift and that’s how I shall recieve it.
My relationship with my boyfriend has strengthened immensely and we plan on being married sometime before the baby is born. Yes that is soon you might think but our feelings have never changed and we are soul mates…..this was meant to be. Maybe the child is God’s way of saying we are supposed to be together forever…who knows. We have everything planned out and we already have a home in the making.
I want every young mother out there to know, if you are determined and strongwilled you can make it through anything; just have faith.

Thank you for your beautiful letter. Your faith and courage are awesome things. God is going to sustain you through everything. Listen to Him in your heart and you will be able to see the next step to take.
Yes, you are young…so was I when I found out I was pregnant. It was frightening, but I knew in the very depths of my being that God was going to help me through it all. He gave me the peace and direction I needed when I felt scared and scattered. I knew my child was definitely not a mistake. You are so right…NO child is. They are all created and loved by GOD and they deserve a chance to live life.
I always felt like I was under scrutiny by older moms. They always seemed to be giving me needless advice. I felt insecure sometimes, like maybe I couldn’t do this. God gave me the strength and knowledge I needed, though,
day by day. He will do the same for you. Don’t let others make you feel small. You are a mother. That is a glorious thing. God will give you the tools you need to carry out the beautiful, yet demanding task of motherhood. He will. He loves you and He loves your child. He will not leave you to carry your burdens alone.
I will be keeping you, your boyfriend and the new life within you in my prayers.
