‘At 16, my mom texted, ‘Have you started your period yet?’ Confused, I said no. Before I even had symptoms, she KNEW.’: Teen mom delivers rainbow baby in wake of mother’s passing

“The day after Mother’s Day, my brother called at 3:30 a.m. ‘There’s been an accident.’ Confused, I asked, ‘What do you mean?’ He replied, ‘Momma has BEEN shot.’ Without a shadow of a doubt, the second my mom got to heaven, she sent my son to save me. And that is exactly what he’s been doing since he took his first breath on this Earth.”

‘Hands trembling, I wrote an email to my father: ‘I’m pregnant. Don’t worry. I have a plan.’: Teen mom turned 6-figure business owner urges ‘young parenthood doesn’t need to be a curse’

“‘You need to get an abortion. You’re only 19, just think about your body. It’ll be ruined forever…and so will your life.’ There I went, across the world, to a Third World Country where I didn’t speak the language or know the customs… to start a new life, baby in tow. We were young, naïve, and so in love.”

“‘No, it hasn’t been long enough. I haven’t had enough time with her.’ I watched them drive away with her. I would always have this love for her, a love a mother carries for their child. I would always see the best of everything in her. She was the only perfect thing I have ever done. I never stopped missing her.”
