How do I tell her about you?

You make my heart swell with pride. I see the same hazel brown eyes staring back at me. The same nose. I hold your tiny hands in my own, marvelling at how small they are.

And yet, there is a fear in my heart along with a whole lot of guilt.

I need you to know that it is not your fault. That I love you with all my heart.

But how do I tell her about you? How do I make my mother understand that I want to keep my baby? Even though I am just sixteen years myself.

    The tragic innocence of teen pregnancy. Somehow, the best movie made in this genre is Juno. Watch it, if you haven’t!
