I am so thankful for my marriage, my education, my job, my religion, my family and my home that give me so much confidence bringing a baby into the world. I can't imagine giving Zoey anything less in her little life. While Jake and I weren't trying, becoming pregnant wasn't a tragedy. I didn't have to change my behaviors, or habits, or start getting my act together in order to offer my baby what she deserves. I feel very blessed to have what I do. I realize how lucky I am, but I know a lot of it has come from me working hard to have a life that I can be proud of.
I know that life is not easy, but I know Heavenly Father blesses me and loves me. I know he sent Zoey to me to bless my life and to put her in my care so I can teach her and raise her. I am even more thankful to know that families are forever and that there is life after death, and that whatever happens to me and my family in this life, that in heaven we will all be together again and forever. This brings me much comfort in a crazy and sometimes scary world.
I hope the best for that little baby with the 16 year old mother. I hope he grows up and decides that when he is ready to be a daddy himself will be when he can give his baby the world. I hope that 16 year old mother grows up fast and sees that a little life has been put in her care.
Now all I want to do is go and wake my baby up and give her a big kiss.
....but I won't cause I'm not crazy! :o)
