My name is Emma & I got pregnant at 16 & gave birth to my amazing son Logan on my 17th birthday. Logan, my Mother, & I all share the same birthday which is June 11th…crazy, I know! The Father of my son is Eric & we are still together. We’ve been thru hell & back but after 3 years everything is starting to fall into place and settle down. I am a stay at home mom & Eric is working for a farming at the moment and we will begin to run his Grandfathers farm this spring, I can’t wait! I was born and raised in B.C. Canada but moved to Manitoba where I met Eric, fell in love…and there was no going back! I’m a very laid back young lady unlike Eric & Logan who are just bouncing off the walls at all times! Become pregnant at a young age was hard but it changed me all for the better. I was going down a dark path before I got pregnant & honestly I think Logan saved my life. Anything more you want to know just ask!
