I was 12 when I got pregnant. My son’s father is my step-brother. When I found out I was for sure pregnant, I told my baby’s father and he was like in total shock. You know, he was 13 and I was 12. We were still kids ourselves. He wanted an abortion, I was like no way. I told my parents, who are My mother and his Father…, they are married so of course they weren’t too happy about

their childern having sex, let alone having a child together. My mom is totally against abortion, so am I. My step dad was all for it and told me that’s what I needed to do. I still was like no way. When I was 3 months pregnant, my mom asked me again what I am going to do. I told her I didn’t have a clue at that point. I knew I loved this baby already. So, I got an ultrasound. After seeing that baby and hearing his heartbeat I was like I am in love. There’s no way I could have taken on the responsibility of this little baby. I didn’t even want to know the sex because I wouldl get more attached then I already was. I didn’t think I could have a baby with a boy who was supposed to be my brother. So, I sat down and I talked to my mom about it a couple weeks later. We decided adoption would be a good choice for my baby to have the best life possible. My baby’s father wanted no part in anything that involved this child. So, I was on my own. It was difficlut considering we live in the same house. I told my mom I would do adoption but only if it was an open adoption. So, I had this girl and her husband that were very close to our family and they agreed to take this baby for me. So, I went in again to the Doctors, I found out the sex. It was a little boy. On December 23rd, 2006, two months after I turned 13 I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Jimmi. He was perfect. I love him with my whole heart, I always have and always will. I am now 16 years old and he is now 2 years old, almost 3.They may have him and he may call them “Mom” and “Dad” But he will always be MY little boy. I still see him often and I get pictures just about every day. Adoption can be a good thing and Abortion should never be the answer. The best part about this whole thing is knowing I gave life. Age doesn’t define how good of a parent you are either.
