"I will never be able to express my gratitude and love and admiration for StandUpGirl and what they have done for my life. From making me strong when I was weak, comforting me when I felt alone, and renewing my faith when I was doubtful. Even now they help renew my strength when they so graciously allow me to share my story. Through sharing, I grow strong because in helping someone, I help myself."
Thank You For All Your Help!
First off I would like to say what you have started is amazing! When I was going through my situation, I wish there was a place I could turn to where I was not the only one. I visited many pregnancy sites while I was pregnant and most were filled whether or not people who thought the right thing to do was tell me I was too young, not smart, and wouldn’t make it, so THANK YOU! for making a site that others who are, and were like me could turn to. I’m so glad Teka introduced me to this site and I hope I can help many of these girls with my story.”
You are not alone and we want to be there to help you!

Life Is Not Always Perfect
All of these girls need to know life is not always perfect and things happen for a reason. We may not know why at first, but someday we will know. All teen moms are not bad, even though the media makes it look that way. I got pregnant at 14 and had a beautiful baby boy, that was 18 years ago. It was hard, I’m not going to lie, but I finished school, married his dad and we are still together with not only our boy, but also a beautiful 13 year old girl.
