I myself couldn't go through with an abortion, i know i would of regretted it and if i had decided on adoption i know i would of developed a bond with my baby in the womb. I believed in myself and my relationship to be strong enough to raise a baby.

did you consider any other decisions?
Briefly. Me and Dom spoke and went trhough all the options and researched them before making our decision to keep Mika.

did you have any other children before and make any different decisions?
No, Mika was my first pregnancy

The first time i had an abortion, i just knew by bf ( the same), i felt really bad about it, had a depression, the second one i knew i was pregnant the same day i had my abortion but one year after. I said to myself God is giving me an other chance.
So i kept my baby and i was in the end of my senior year in high school, and i was already in an appartment with my bf who was working.

I kept my baby because I knew we could make it work. We had each other and most of all we had our families.
I never considered abortion because I myself don't beleive in it (to an extent) I wouldn't have been able to do.
Adoption we discussed but decided neither of us could bare to not have our child.
This was my first pregnancy.

Oh there was all that promise of love honor and cherish and I had no support system for any decision other than keeping the baby. There really wasn't any option I knew of other than keep the baby at that time.

1. i knew i could support her and i dont bleive in abortion for myself

2. i did consider adoption but i knew i could provide for her and i had support of my (now) husband and my family and his family (if we broke up i think his family would probably support me more then him lol)

3. this was the first and so far only

I kept her because Jacob and I could support her and I loved her from the second I knew I was pregnant. I never considered any other option, my friend was put up for adoption and was bounced around foster homes and raped in one of them. I could never put my daughter in a position where that could happen to her.

I was pregnant once before and aborted.

I wanted to keep Macy because I knew we could take care of her but my mom convinced me I needed to abort her since I was very into sports. Sitting in the room at the clinic seeing those huge needles of stuff and the other women in the recovery area made me wanna vomit. I got up n put my pants on b4 the doc even left the room. told my mom I wasnt doing it and Im glad I didnt.

Same thing. Graduate high school, go to ASMT and become an accredited massage therapist, get a job at a resort, save up some money, move to Cali and get a job at a resort there. It's just been pushed ahead a bit, since before I planned on going the normal route and staying in school, but now I'm graduating a year early.

I'm going to assume you meant the graduating a year early, because I've never heard of a message therapist that works on pooches.



Actually, wait, I have. Crazy Hollywoodites.

I didn't know you were homeschooling before you got pregnant.
How did you find out about homeschooling? Was Travis homeschooling before you got pregnant, too?

make the decison you did to have your baby and keep it? I decided to keep Dante because I knew that it was my responsibility to take care of the child that I produced. I knew that my fiance would support me no matter what, but I trusted that everything would be okay.

did you consider any other decisions? Yes, for a brief time after I found out I considered abortion, although I knew I couldn't have actually gone through it. I was shocked and scared, and that's one option I could think about besides keeping him.

did you have any other children before and make any different decisions?
No, he was my first and only so far.

What were your plans for your future before you got pregnant? To finish my college degree and go on to nursing. And those are still my plans. I'm still doing full time at college and finishing up my junior year. It might just take an extra summer to finish then before.
