As a full time nanny, I’ve seen everything it takes to be good parents. I look at parenting as an important choice. One to be taken seriously after emotional preparation, financial planning, and a stabilized life.
At 22 I got pregnant and knew I was not emotionally or financially stable enough to be a good mother. I opted for an abortion and started birth control. At 25 I was pregnant again, despite being on birth control. I had always felt that the abortion I had was the right decision and did not question having another. Again, I was not prepared to be the parent my child would deserve and I firmly believe no child deserves less than the best. I have never regretted my choices. I work with children on a daily basis and though I love them and enjoy them, I am constantly reminded that I would not have been able to provide my children with the lives they needed.
