I was a teen model and when I got pregnant they told me it was the end of my short career. I was only a senior in high school and very confused. I was so pressured not to “give up my life just for one mistake.” 

The fact that I was sick as a dying dog didn’t help too much, but I knew that I just couldn’t kill the life inside me. 

I made a sacrifice for my daughter and not a day goes by that I am not thankful for the decision I made.
