But, for me, there is no ruination on that day. It's the day of my daughter's birth.
I'm a teenage mom statistic. A baby giving birth to a baby. Seventeen years old, still in school, and a new mom who had no idea what she was doing. The hardships and struggles were real. And I'd do it all over again.
I couldn't be a prouder momma of who she's become. Against her own struggles, she's risen to the top and has made a life for herself. Shelby lives in her own apartment (thank goodness it's only on the other side of town), works night shift as a Psych Tech, goes to school part-time in the nursing program, and plays on the local roller derby team.
Happy 21st birthday to "My Elby"!
