Honestly in some aspects yes but in others no. I was 16 when I got pregnant and had my beautiful daughter at 17. My biological mother abandoned me when I was pregnant so my best friend and her family let me stay with them. During that time I had makayla. when she was 1monrh I achieved my GED, by the time she was 6mo old I had a apartment and had already gotten my CNA I and II then got hired at the local hospital. I'm now 26, my daughter is 9, and even though I'm still a single mom I'm very accomplished still working in a hospital and maintaining a house a car and of course a dog and a cat! It is a struggle even still but her birth pushed my ambitions to take care of her! My mother didnt do well by me or set a good example but I intend to continue doing differently for my daughter! I am engAged but he is a truck driver so it's still mostly me and her! Her father isn't in the picture because he was only slowing me down. Just remember your child's happiness is the most important, but don't forget to make yourself happy as well, but doing so without being selfish!View Thread
