I had just got out of a three year relationship with my first love, really, when I met my new boyfriend in September 2006. By January, I found out I was pregnant. It was something that wasn’t expected and wasn’t planned. I went and told my boyfriend who decided we should go and take another pregnancy test. After I was thinking my life was falling apart (I only started to go out and enjoy myself as I was 19 years old), I went and had a C section. On the 17th September 2007, my wee baby was born. Looking back now, I would not change him for the world. I love him and his daddy. He and I are still together a year and a half later and think our baby boy made us stronger. September is a special month for me now because my boyfriend’s birthday is on the 16th, our son’s on the 17th and our anniversary on the 14th, but I am so glad I decided to keep my baby because it gives me a reason to try to be the best in life and give my wee boy the best life possible.
