I don't want to offend anyone, at all. I just noticed a few things that I would like to point out and give my opinion on. I have not been on very often, I have been really busy, I have a 7 month old crawling around trying to put everything in his mouth, and 2 older kids that like to make messes. Just a few days ago I decided to get on here, and I noticed that someone had posted something about a soon to be mommy, Teengirlinlove. There was a few comments that I kinda found a little judge-mental and I feel that some of the things said were pretty harsh. First off, to the people saying she should put her baby up for adoption, I don't think it's anyone place to tell her how to handle this situation. Only she can make that decision. I agree parenting is hard, but just because she's young does not mean she can't be a great mother. I know plenty of young mothers that are a lot better than some of the older moms I know. Not only are they very determined and great at sticking to punishments, but they are young enough to actually play with there kids. I am in my 30's and it's hard to get down and play with my kids, I'm old, and I don't have the energy to play. I am in no way saying that all kids should have kids, but honestly I think being a parent at a younger age does have it's benefits. And going by her posts she is very determined to be a great mom, and that's all that matters, is that she is really willing to try her best at parenting. I understand it's really hard, I thought I was going to go insane when my kids were younger. I am working, I am trying to go to college, I have a baby and it's stressful but that doesn't mean we don't get through it. Okay now on to my advice. Do what feels right to you, do NOT make a huge decision based on what others want you to do. When I was 15 I got pregnant, and my mother made me get an abortion, I have regretted it ever since.I am able to take care of that baby now and I feel guilty for not trying when I was younger. It haunts me everyday of my life. I always have dreams about how my life would be with that baby, and it kills me to think about it. I love my kids with all my heart and I could never think of hurting them, and then the fact that I let her do that just over whelms me with guilt. Now adoption may be a good idea for you, but do it because you want to, not because others think you should. If you wanna keep this baby, I think you got a great shot at being a great mother. Don't let anyone tell you that you can't be a mother because you're young, age really has nothing to do with it, I know a lot of mature 14 year olds that could be better parents than I could. I try my best, but that doesn't mean I don't struggle every second of it, and I am older. No matter how old you are or how much experience you have. Parenting is hard, for everyone. :) Good luck to you and your family and your boyfriend! I hope everything works out for you! And Congratulations!
