My name is Grace. I’m a 20 year old mother to the world’s most beautiful, energetic, grey-eyed baby boy named Christian. He will be 10 months on May 3rd! Yay Christian! He is the reason why I smile every day because he reminds me how beautiful life can be! I have learned to see the beauty in every one and everything. He inspires me to be the best I can be in every way.
Because of him I hold my head high and do everything I say I want to accomplish. Having him at 19 made me grow up very fast but because of him I have a dream, which is to become a nurse. I love being a mom even in the most difficult times.
I hope to one day be an inspiration to other young mothers like me. I want to prove to the world that I didn’t make a mistake and I especially want to prove to the world that I didn’t ruin my life! Yes, it’s a daily struggle but I honestly think that my son changed my life in a positive way. One day every one will understand my decision to have a child but right now I’m still working on getting my life together while enjoying every moment of it!

Your baby is so cute… and you will not only prove people wrong your son will also be very proud of you.
Thank you! That means a lot
Feel the same way. No mistakes. Our babies open our eyes to many things we were blinded to
Yes they did . Most people think our life is over because we had them but its not. It’s so annoying
It is. I hate it because people who do not experience similar situation judge.
Your son is so cute!
I’m 19 years old turning 20 in March, I’ve been with my partner for 4 years I honestly can’t wait to have a baby, neither can he, hes always wanted one in his 20’s.
My 3 siblings are both older and already have kids, My sister & my brothers kids both lived at our home for the first 6 months after they were born, my brother was 20 when he had his daughter, so i know how much hard work it is and how amazing children are.
I would love to have a baby and probably would if it wasn’t for everyone being so judgmental.
Yes children are amazing! You should try talking to your boyfriend about the pros & cons of having a baby at this age verses having a baby in a couple of years. Wish you the best! 🙂
