At 19, I had:
...dropped out of college to be with my boyfriend.
...gotten myself pregnant with said boyfriend.
...a job at Burger King.
...barely been out of the state.
At 19, she is:
...on her second year of college with the credits of a Junior.
...staying away from boys (at this point).
...working towards a future in which fast food is not her only option for employment.
...getting ready to fly to Spain for a semester.
We all want better for our children than what we were able to have ourselves. In my case, I have not only reached that goal but surpassed it by leaps and bounds. The world is her oyster and she is savoring every moment. I am so proud of her and I know that the path she is on will lead her whereever she wants to go.
Happy Birthday Baby! I love you very much:-)
