First, don’t worry about being judged for protecting your son or daughter. You should walk with your head held high and be proud of who you are and what you are doing. Getting pregnant at a young age is actually intended by evolution, hence why you ovulate and have an incredibly strong sex drive at this age. It is only our societal construct, mainly developed during the Victorian Era, that frowns on mothers like you. Don’t let this bother you. You just focus on the health and safety of your child.

My mother gave birth to me when she was 17 years old. Although a bit older than you, she was still very young. My biological father, whom I do not know and have never had contact with, did not help her with me. We were helped by our family and friends and we made it just fine. She did not need to kill me in the womb to continue her life. We are still very close to this day. And guess what, I’m going to be there to take care of her in her twilight years. That’s how a mother/child relationship works. We don’t kill each other because we are scared, young, or concerned about what others might think of us.

Remember, you don’t have to place your child for adoption I assume your family would help with your child, just like my family helped with me. Of course, adoption is a great option as well. Although letting your child go to another family can be emotionally difficult, it’s not as difficult as having to live with the knowledge that you killed your own son or daughter for the rest of your life. Also, be aware that there is something called open adoption. Under this agreement, you get to visit and spend time with your child as he or she grows up. They will admire you for placing their needs first, you will be their hero because you gave them life when you could have so easily had them slaughtered.

Life does not always go as planned, but you have so much to look forward to. You are on the road to knowing the greatest love of all. Don’t let anyone make you feel bad for protecting your child. You are in control of his or her life and you owe them the protection of a loving mother.
