My name is E. I fell pregnant at the age of 15 and had my beautiful baby girl a week after my 16th birthday.
Editor’s note: Thanks for sharing your story with us. It sounds as if your boyfriend was really quite scared by the prospect of a pregnancy and what that might mean for him, having been in a relationship with a much younger girl. He may just be trying to ignore the situation, running away from it, rather than taking responsibility and facing the choice of whether to commit to his child as a father. For you, it seems you are fully reconciled to having your daughter and have come through this change in your life well. It might help you to talk through with someone how you feel about the father’s lack of involvement and make some decisions about what to do. As I think you may be in the States, you can call Optionline on 800 – 395 – HELP to find this support.
