I was a troublesome teen, getting arrested and running away. I found out I was pregnant with a girl at age 14, and had her very shortly after turning 15. I moved a couple of states away from everyone I knew and found a job, walked everyday to work, and found a cheap rental house. My daughter saved me from my self-destructive behavior. I’m proud to say that I have a degree in biology as of this year (2015), and am applying to medical school. My daughter is worth it! I have a 3 year old son now as well, and I can’t imagine a better reason to live. My kids are my world.
