Name: Austin
DOB: 7/3/2000
Weight: 7 lbs 8 oz

Austin’s dad didn’t want me to have Austin. He went so far as to say that Austin wasn’t his son. He refused to take resposibility for my pregnancy and he and his mother tried to get me to have an abortion. I knew I wouldn’t be able to kill my unborn child. 

To begin with I thought about adoption, but then things changed as I got further along in my pregnancy. At one point my parents offered to adopt my child if I didn’t want the responsibility of raising him and so I could still see him grow up. 

I decided that I would keep my baby and it is the best choice I could of made. This May I will graduate from high school and in July Austin will turn 1 year old.
