Some people said my life ended when I had a baby but really my life had just begun. "You didn't take away from my future, you gave me a new one".
I had just graduated high school a few short months ago and had already started my path to becoming an RN. I was 17 years old on that May morning where I woke up feeling "different" in my heart and in my gut. What happened next was something that we could've never expected. A test reading "pregnant". Could that be right? At 17 and 18 years old we were faced with the biggest decision of our lives but in our hearts we knew instantly what to do. There is no "perfect time" to have a baby. Support varied- we had people who were as passionate and committed to this baby as we were and others who wanted nothing to do with us or our decision but at the end of the day that was exactly what it was. Our decision.
