I was 17 and in my last year of high school. My boyfriend and I had just broken up when I found out. We had done everything possible to not get pregnant, I was on the pill and we used condoms every time we had sex, we knew a baby was not in our future. I was not capable of raising a child, not monetarily, not mentally, I did not have the resources needed at 17 for that. I was still a child myself.

I am 20 now and I think of all the experiences I would have missed out on and I do not regret my choice. I do really want to have children one day and I can’t wait to be excited by the news of my pregnancy instead of terrified and sad.
