I am a product of teen parents. Neither were mature enough or mentally prepared to rear a child. Many options were considered: send my mom to a home for unwed mothers, abortion, adoption or keep me.
I grew up wishing I had been adopted by loving parents. Nothing replaces the love from your parents. Now at 35, I continue to struggle with the long term impacts of trauma, low self esteem & confidence, depression and anxiety. This is often what happens when a child is brought into the world when parents are not emotionally available, mature or prepared. Decisions have consequences for generations. Women need choices.
