My boyfriend left me and I no longer keep in touch with him, which is his loss, my baby will be perfect

Hey, I'm 14 years old and my boyfriend is 19. Well, it was 8 weeks when I found out I was pregnant with my baby girl and still am. I am now 7 months. 

When I found out I was pregnant I cried and told my boyfriend and he said we could do it together. Of course, I trusted him but when it came to the time of telling our parents, well, I was scared. His parents reacted very mellow to the fact that he was going to be a father. 

On the other hand, my mom and grandma blew up in his and my faces and they told me that I was to abort the baby but I said no.

They got over it and they accepted the fact that I was pregnant and keeping the baby. However, my boyfriend left me and calling me various things and said: "I don't know who the baby's daddy is". This was when I was 4 months along however I no longer keep in touch with him which is his loss and my baby will be perfect...
