I'm Keeping My Baby

A Tale For & About Teen Parents

About the Book

All women regardless of age deserve the right to reproductive freedom without judgement. If they choose to continue with their pregnancy, they need support. If they choose to abort their pregnancy, they need support.If they choose to adopt the baby out, they need support. There needs to be a sane voice amidst the culture of fear surrounding teen pregnancy. Many teen women will become pregnant today. This is a scary and sobering reality. Teen pregnancy is not what you see on television; it is precious, terrifying, and isolating. Many teens have it in their mind that conceiving a baby will make the father stay, or that they will find companionship with that child.This simply isn't the case, and when those realities crumble, both the mother and child will need a resource; a place to start finding support, whether they decide to continue the pregnancy or not. I am writing this book to give those women a glimmer of hope. We are here, we survived, and so will they. It may not be pretty, it may be graphic, but it is the truth uncensored.
