well no one said being a mom was easy!!

I was a teen mom at young age of 16 1/2. It sucked. Back in 1990 was before there was alot of teen moms or help. I learned tho one thing..that it wasn't all about me. Everything I did from here on out was to better my childs life..I quickly learned to loose my teen gilr ideas and open my eyes as a real mom. If you cant do that . then i dont know what to say!

    So very true. Sounds like you chose to grow up for your child, so did my sisters when they were teen moms.
