I'm 15 years old and I kept my baby

I'm gonna tell you my story. I am 15 years old and my bf was 17 I knew that I was going to have a baby. My boyfriend and I was talkin about what to do with it at first, and then I looked at it a different way and I knew that it wasn't my baby's fault that he/she was in me. Me and my boyfriend was dating for ten months when we found out we was having a baby he was there the whole time no matter what it was about, or whatever I needed. I guess that's good on my part, me and him both said to each other it's our fault, we are the one who had sex so we have to do it on our own.

Telling my mama was the hard part

We didn't have no one cause my dad was on drugs really bad and my mama I think she was on them too I didn't know though. His mama was there for most part and his dad was too, but they thought since we got ourself in the mess then we could do it.
Telling my mama was the hard part during the whole thing cause I knew that when ever she found out she wasn't gonna let me see my boyfriend and when I did tell her she looked at me and told me that it was my own fault and to go to my room. I never knew what to do and I couldn't see my boyfriend, but late at night he would come to my house and I would go off with him and not come back for days. When I did yeah I got in very bad trouble.
I told my mama that my bf was gonna see the baby cause I didn't want my baby to end up without a dad. At the time I was 8 months and then I went into labour and I told everyone that I was going to keep him. He was named after his father. Having a baby was hard at first but then I got used to it and I knew that I was all that baby had and whatever he needed I had to give it to him.
I love him more then ever, me and my bf are still together we have a house and I'm still in school. He pays all the bills until I get out of school then I'm gonna help out.
I thought maybe this would help some people cause I didn't have not one person but my bf and we did it on our own but thanks for reading.
