Sidney’s Story

Posted on by Renee Morales

"I was really good at softball and I was on the drumline for band. I was going out on weekends having fun like a normal teenager.

When I found out I was pregnant, I was really upset. I couldn't believe it, and I felt like my world was ending then. My mom didn't talk to me until Amelia was born. My stepdad didn't talk to me until she was 2 months old. I was constantly told my life was over and that I messed up my future big time.

I want people to know that being a young mom is so hard. I don't always get to do the things I love anymore. Sacrifices have to be made so this innocent baby can have the life she deserves. But because of her, I've straightened up my life tremendously. My grades are higher than ever and I don't get in trouble anymore.

Going to Parent life has helped me by the lessons they teach, whether for our baby, or relationship wise, or family at home. If I need help or someone to talk to, they are there when no one else is. They listen to what I have to say without judgement. They let me feel like everything will be okay."
