I’m glad I had a choice

I’m glad I had a choice. I was 16 and I’m glad I wasn’t forced into having a baby I couldn’t support, feed, clothe, etc all by myself. I think about it frequently and about the “ what if’s” but I think that’s natural and I think it’s okay to wonder and feel all sorts of emotions. We are human. When I’m married in a respectful relationship I will be ready and I will love my children more than ever. If I would’ve had the baby at 16 with the wrong man I would’ve faced many difficulties and I don’t want my child to experience a broken relationship. I don’t regret it. I’ll have a baby when I’m ready to give it the world. I’m glad I had a choice.

Remember that our stories are ours to tell. We’d love to hear your story too!
