Now that I am pregnant he has left me.

I'm now 19 years of age and I found out I was pregnant at 18. The father of my child is now 24 and we was together for nearly a year before I became pregnant.
He has already got a son which he does nothing for because he claims he did not even know the girl was having his baby.

Now that I am pregnant he left me and said he wants nothing to do with my baby.

Although he is not denying it, he has been calling to try and get me to have an abortion. I decided to keep it and I currently have no support from him or my family.
They kicked me out so now I'm pregnant and alone for my little boy who is due in September.
This is the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with. Along with this I am also revising for my A-levels in the summer. I pray daily to God to help me with my load. Babies are a blessing and I still feel that I made the right choice to keep my baby.

Editor's Comment

You are very brave to face having your baby boy with no support. I am sorry that your boyfriend and family have turned their backs on you. Please consider getting in touch with a local pregnancy centre. I am sure they would look into support for you at this time so that you are not alone. You can call the national helpline to get more information.
