I knew in my heart that I did not want to kill an innocent life, which had nothing to do with my mistakes of having unprotected sex. hey cared about was the family"tms repetition. If I did have the child, would I ever be a good mother and still be able to be a teenager I ask myself that everyday and I don"tmt ever think I will be able to find out those answers. So really I made three mistakes, which I will always remember and helped me turn my life around.
