When I was 17 I found out I was pregnant after missing 2 periods.

It wasn’t too big of a surprise since we didn’t use protection but I was new to sex and trusted my boyfriend that we wouldn’t get pregnant. My boyfriend at the time was a heroin addict and I was barely out of high school.

I signed up for government help to pay for the abortion but it ran out before my actual appointment so my best friends grandma paid for it. I made the best decision by not bringing that baby into this world with an incapable mother and a drug addicted father. I’m now married and waiting to have a child until I’m 100% capable of giving the child everything it needs!
