Hello everybody! I am 21 years old, and have a 3 month old baby boy. He is my angel and my life. I can honestly say, I love being a mother. Not that there aren’t challenges, but I learn to overcome them.
I’ve lost my friends in a way, because we’re now in two different parts in our lives. So, I do feel lonely sometimes. I have my fiance, but it’s different when you have other mommy friends to relate to.
I am hoping to go back to school in September. My biggest dream is to be a midwife or a nurse. I know it’s going to be difficult and challenging, but I have to do it for my son and for myself. I never knew I could love somebody this much. Of course I love my fiance, but the love of my son is so much different. I can’t even imagine life before him.
One of the challenges I had in the hospital was being taken serious. My son was in the NICU for a week, because his sugar level was extremely low. It was heart breaking seeing him in an incubator with all different kind of wires and monitors. Some of the nurses were extremely rude. I’m not sure if it was my age or if they looked down at me cause they saw what kind of insurance I had.
However, my fiance and I were there from 8 in the morning until 11 at night, every single day. Even after I was discharged from the hospital, I came home, took a shower and my fiance and I were back at the hospital, sitting next to our son. We are committed and devoted parents. We love our son unconditionally and work our butts off to provide for him.
Just because we’re young parents, doesn’t mean we can’t be good parents. I wouldn’t change my life and I definitely do not regret the choices I have made. I am proud parent. =)
