If you’re like me then diapers, school work, and headaches are basically your daily routine. Now you might be asking yourself, “What does she mean?” Well, what I mean is that I am a teen mom who gets a lot of headaches juggling schoolwork and diapers! My name is Sarah. I’m 16 years old and I have a one year old daughter who drives me crazy, but loves me even crazier. I went to a regular high school for my freshman year but sophomore, and now junior year, I’m homeschooled. While trying to be an on-task student and a fun-loving mommy, things get hectic! But it will all pay off when I graduate.

I want to tell you guys just a bit of my teen mom story. I gave birth to my daughter, who is about to be two in three weeks, when I was 14 years old. I am not proud of that but I don’t regret her. I feel as though my daughter makes me even more ambitious and my drive for success is higher because she motivates me to be something in life. Speaking of being something in life, I do plan on graduating high school and going to college.

A lot of young girls are afraid to tell their teen mom story or even let people know that they have a child. I used to be like that when I first had my daughter. You have to own who you are and own up to your mistakes! People are going to judge you no matter what, so who cares what they think! I hope there are some girls who can relate to this because this is the number one reason I’m writing on this particular topic. Often when you’re a teen mom you can feel like you’re in it alone and nobody out there can relate. I felt this way before.

I just want to say no matter who you are, or where you come from, you can be something great in life! Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you can’t! And for the teen moms who are reading this right now, stay strong and stay focused!
