I am currently 15 and three days ago I found out I was pregnant. I am 2 1/2 months along and I am extremely scared. Me and my boyfriend have been together for four years now, but 3 weeks ago he went to jail. I don't want to tell my parents because I know how disappointed they will be in me. I am a straight A student and rarely get in trouble, so idk how they will react. I know I have to them soon but I don't want too. Can I have some help?

I was 17 years old when I found out I was pregnant. Now I am 19 years old and pregnant with my second child. At 17, I became pregnant with my daughter. Her father was out of the picture as soon as I told him I was pregnant with his baby. I had my daughter the week of finals and graduated on time with the rest of my senor class. Now I am in my second year of college and am 10 weeks pregnant. My mom was upset that I "let this happen again" but is being supportive. The father of this child, my boyfriend, and I will be moving in together in July so we will be ready once the baby comes in October.

I was 19 and about 3 weeks along in my pregnancy when I found out from having constant nausea. My due date is November 29th, 2011. I was dating my boyfriend of about 2 or 3 months....He started getting abusive towards me. Then I found out I was pregnant....When we both found out, we were so happy and were talking about starting our life with our baby. After a few weeks, he was being even more abusive and clingy and not letting me go anywhere. I had to end it for many reasons and kick him out of my place, but was heartbroken about my child.

Meanwhile, my mom was freaking out and trying to get me to choose adoption. I wanted to move back with my mom so I didn't have the expenses of rent, but my mom said if I kept my child, she would kick me out and not help me whatsoever. I still wanted to parent. Then I got kicked out of my apartment because of a noise complaint one night. I had to move back in with my mom. At that point I was about 4 months along and had decided with all the help from the government, money would still be an issue.

I decided to go to Lutheran Social Services and try to find an adoption couple for my baby. I knew I was too young to have a child and give it the care it needs. I'm still basically a child myself. At this point, I had found out I was having a baby boy. I was really sad that I couldn't keep my child. I loved him so much already. But this is the best decision for my him. I am currently still 19, am 7 months along in my pregnancy and have found a PERFECT family for my baby. I love them like my best friends, as we are like good friends. She is a 5 grade teacher and he is a lawyer. I am excited for him to be born and meet the adoption parents I have chosen for him. I will be sent pictures and get to see him a lot. The parents are really open about it. I know when he grows up he will understand the love I had for him and still do and always will have. We have not yet chosen a name for him but we are currently working on one together.

Now on another note, I thought I'd share some of my best friend Leah's story. Leah is also 19, found out she was pregnant about a week after I found out I was. She chose parenting, as she does have a better stable family. She is getting married to her boyfriend of a year. They live in their parents house. We've always thought of each other doing everything together, even having children together at the same time. It happened, but unfortunatly when we were too young. Everyone thinks it was planned or something, because we've been inseperable since middle school. It was pure coincidence. Both our children will be born in the same hospital. She is due 2 days before me, November 27th, 2011 with a baby girl named Briana. I wish her the best of luck. I hope you were inspired by my story <3
