I found out I was pregnant on my 21st birthday. It was not planned and
in fact I never really planned on having children in the future. I am now 8 weeks
pregnant and so confused. I am very pro-life, I just can't bring myself to go
through with an abortion. I have visited abortion clinics and the thought of going
through with it sickens me.
feel I have no support from my family or my boyfriend. Everyone has been telling
me my only choice is abortion-I need someone to talk to,someone to just listen
to me and not tell me what to do. I feel so lonely lately, my relationship of
2 years is going down the drain and my family is just as confused as I am.

In January I found out on my 21st
birthday that I was pregnant, at that time I was confused and had no idea what
to do. It is now March and I am 4 months pregnant. I decided to keep my baby and
raise it with my boyfriend and with the help of my family. I am very happy with
my decision, I know I couldn't have done it any other way. I found out it's a
boy and he's due in September.
It can be extremely scary when you are young,
single and pregnant. Remember the choice is ultimately yours, do what is the best
for you and not what's best for someone else. I just felt keeping my baby would
be the best choice for me. I felt it also helps to have someone to confide in,
this web page has helped me tremendously-I have received tons of e-mails with
great advice, it helps to know you are not the only one out there going through
what can seem like hell when you're confused.
