Is anyone taking their children this age? And what do you tell them about these pictures? Edited to add: Feel free to send me a private e-mail...
What does NARAL stand for? This sounds so important, maybe I should just get into more debt just to go. Thanks for starting this thread mum2a&a! And, thanks Els' 3 Ones, SBFmommy, and Arduinna for the encouraging words.
I wish I could go ... but no money. I'll be there in spirit with you. And, I will continue to represent teenagers (FOR FREE) who in my state have to go to court to convince a judge that they shouldn't have to tell their parents about their reproductive choice. I have won all seven cases I have tried!
Gendenwitha, I have thought of doing that too. So far, I have been able to convince my dh to be foster parents. One day, I will include pregnant teens in our growing list of foster children. Since we have a biological 6-year-old we have so far limited our foster children to those younger than her. I would start with your state's website. My state has a website called itsuptoyou.org. The front page says, "Don't walk away from abuse and neglect. It is up to you to make...
Good for you, Beth!

I remember my mom telling my aunts how funny it was that I would take lots of baths as a teenager when I was on my period. I guess I thought I was dirty or something. But I have had to rethink and relearn and show...
I was DEFINITELY not a teen parent. I was 36 with my first. But my niece got pregnant at 16 and is now on her second at the age of 19. I found a cool site called GirlMom.com. She never visited the site, because she moved away to another city and now doesn't have a computer or a car and stays home all day with her two babies. But ya'll might like it. EDITED TO ADD: And she is a VERY GOOD mommy!
See http://www.ncadv.org CHECKLIST: Think about how you are being treated and how you treat your partner. Remember, when one person scares, hurts or continually puts down the other person, it’s abuse. Does your partner.... ____ Embarrass or make fun of you in front of your friends or family? ____ Put down your accomplishments or goals? ____ Make you feel like you are unable to make decisions? ____ Use intimidation or threats to gain compliance? ____...
My first conversation with my now 6-year-old dd was when she was 3 months old. I was in my home-town (where one year it had the school with the highest teenage pregnancy rate in the nation) visiting my mom. My best friend called and asked if she could come over to cry on my shoulder about her pregnant teenage daughter. So I took my 3 month old and talked to her for one hour. I found it so DIFFICULT to say so many of those things. But I told myself, OK it is difficult now...
I got one of those stupid 900 polls that I get all the time that I usually throw away. But this one is about a mother who was charged with murder for refusing a caesarean section. Doctors claim they told her a caesarean was needed to save the life of both twin babies but supposedly she refused, claiming she would rather have one of them die than have a caesarean section. This is really scary. I had a c-section after begging several doctors to deliver my breach baby....
