So my boyfriend and I found out that I was pregnant...


"So my boyfriend and I found out that I was pregnant around my birthday. It was bittersweet, we were both elated to be having a child. At the same time my pay was greatly decreased at my job, I had no health benefits, and we were forced to live with family. It pained us and still does to have to have to turn to this option, but I would not want our child who was only 4wks to live in a world where myself or my partner could not give them the things they need. I wish I could have afforded our child, to feed, clothe, and procure substantial education. It will stay with me forever, but I know we did the right thing in the long run." —anonymous
