im 21, i had my first baby when i was 18 after getting pregnant at 17. 6/16/09 i gave birth to the most beautiful little boy i could have ever imagined. My life has been very complicated. I met my boyfriend in 2006, and we've been together ( off and on) ever since. Things seem to be getting alot better now and for once we're both happy, but sometimes life gets a little harder than expected. We both work full time jobs, and we are completely on our own with our son. Financially we do everything on our own, paying for our apartment and bills, to everything else. We get no help from family or welfare. They are always willing to babysit, but other than that we're doing amazing for being on our own. I'm just finishing up with high school, 2 years late, but better than never! i dropped out when i got pregnant and went back. and plan on going to a community college in the fall.
