you might want to check out the new book by Deborah Davis, You Look Too Young To Be a Mother (google it, or amazon.com) it's a collection of essays by teen mamas, and it's supposed to be pretty empowering.

I dunno if this counts seeing as how I was "legal" by the time I had her, but I gave birth to DD1 three months after my 18th birthday. It was very hard being a teen parent. In hindsight I see what a crappy mother I was and I try to make up for it now by just being there and loving her more!! If you want to PM me, feel free.

Solo Mum to 4 and loving every minute of it!!!!
