A Changed Life

When you’re the first teenager to get pregnant in your school, you’re going to get talked about.

I was really angry. I was angry at him, I was angry at myself. I’ve realized those were very, very destructive relationships.

I knew pretty soon that I was going to do adoption. It’s not that I would have been a bad parent. I think in any adoption, there’s a lot of conflicting emotions. But I just knew it was the right thing.

It was much, much better than I could have imagined it. I got to choose the adoptive family. They just seemed like really sweet and kind people.

Even in the worst of times, it’s just like…a sweetness. It felt really good. I was changing their lives too. It just felt really good.
