I was 19 and in love...

October 27, 2011

"I was 19 and in love. The first in my family to go to college, to break from the cycle of economic despair. 5 months shy of not being a teenage mother, the test came back positive. Two time zones from my boyfriend, I was so alone. I sat on a Civil War battleground and made the call. I couldn't go through with it. He supported me no matter what. I would have been a good mother, he would have been a good father. But neither of us would have been the best we could be though. Now 6 years later, I rest comfortably knowing I made the right decision--for me, for him, for the child we didn't bring into this world. Only him and only I know this. It's time to end the silence."  —Laura
