Oh i wish i lived in Canada!
I hear their health plans are just so much better than ours.
My friend Amanda's birth cost twelve fifty. Thats in Rhode Island.
She is the only 'young mother' i know of thats actually doing it right. She found out when she was four months along that she was pregnant. Shed been getting her period all along too. Past the time when she would have been able to get an abortion, she was forced into having her baby. Shed been with the father for over two years at the time, and was saving to move out of their apartment into a house. They both had jobs, though they did lead kind of a party life. As soon as she found out she was pregnant, she quit drinking, smoking and partying, got another job, and chose to stay in her apartment. Her boyfriend had a job, and needed to find another, and couldent find one. He ended up being a stripper at a gay strip club to help save money. They didnt mind, most of their money came from that job! Once she had Jasmine, she took leave of her jobs, stayed at home for six months, and sadly, lost one of her jobs. But she got her other one back. During this time, Jon and Amanda went to online college, Everest, and both got degrees. Jasmine just turned two a few months ago, and last month, they put a down payment on a house.
They did all this without any help from family. Amandas family isnt supportive at all, her mom will not stop getting pregnant, all from different men, all the children are horribly behaved, and to say the least their hood. Jons family, though supportive is really poor, and in bad health, so they couldent really offer any help.
Jasmine is the best baby i have ever met. She says please and thank you, waits to talk to you, helps you do chores. She loves 'alone time' and is really independent. Shes so respectful and courtious, and shes only two! I credit Amanda...She came from a family that had no values or morals, and made the absolute best of the situation she was thrown into. She calls Jasmine her life saver. Finding out she was pregnant changed Amanda and Jons life forever, and for the better.
And out of all the people i know, shes the only person who seems to know how to raise a child.
