When your 19, you start planning for colleges, which one to go to, and how fun it is going to be without your parents around. Not me. I was getting diapers, house proofing the house, and going to doctors visits. I pamela, at age 19 was PREGNANT! One of a parents worst nightmare had come true for my mom. Her child was having a child! Now at age 24, raising a 4 year old, I finally want to speak out! When I was 19, I thought I would marry my childs father. He said that he would always be there...He hasn't seen his son since 2008. 9 out of 10 teen pregnancys do NOT stay or marry the childs father. We need to make a change!
Right now, america is the #1 in the ratings. Meaning, out of all the countries in the world, america has the highest rate of teen pregnancies. We need to STOP this. We need to start talking to our kids alot more. I want to change a teens life by just saying no, But I don't know what to do. I don't know know where to start. I thought maybe making a scrapbook journal would make me start! heartPamelaheart
