The responsibility is very big. We don’t have it as easy as our parents. Sometimes even adults struggle. Being a teen parent is a lot of work. You need to get a job to pay hospital and doctor appointments, food and formula, diapers, whipes, clothes, shoes, toyes, etc. It’s a lot of work because not only do you have to support your baby, but also yourself and your partner if they decide to stay. I just found out a friend of mine was pregnant. Her boyfriend was one of my chambelanes from my quinceanera, so we have a really close relationship. She’s four months, they’re having a boy named Santiago, and he’s due in July. Her belly is growing and they are really cute together. My boyfriend and me talk about it sometimes. We plan what we would do in case I accidently got pregnant.
I’m only 16. a sophomore in high school. I am doing so good at being the top 50th student in my class, high honor roll, and what not. In my middle school days, they use to tell me that they wouldn’t be surprised if I got pregnant at 16. Ever since then I’ve wanted to prove them wrong. I still will but I just want to know, why do people judge teenagers that get pregnant? There are some girls who are responsible, boys who are wanting to be good dads, like they’re prepared, have a plan. Why do we judge them, honestly. Some girls get treated well while others are called sluts or hoes. Why? I want to know what people would say about me. Being a very liked person, someone who doesn’t have a problem with anyone, an amazing student, religious, very known, you know? I want to know what it’s like. My friend and her boyfriend are so in love with each other and this baby that they don’t care what anyone says. That is adorable. I wish I could love someone that much.
