Megan’s Story

Posted on by Laura Green

On March 3, 2011 I found out I was pregnant. I took three pregnancy tests and they all said positive. I was in denial. Never in my life would I have thought I would be a teen mom. I could not tell my parents to their face because I felt as if I’d let them down. So rather than have to face them I texted them the news and moved out and in with my friend for the first couple of months of my pregnancy. After being sick every day and missing my family I finally decided to come back home. I didn’t want to be a teen mom but since I couldn’t change that it was time for me to make peace with myself. After moving back home I started going to the Teen Moms Bible study on Wednesday nights at my church. It’s hard juggling school and all the other things that come with being a teen mom so it was good to find a group where girls were going through the same thing I was. Hearing the other girls talk and knowing I wasn’t alone was a relief.

After having Hallie Grace, I realized how important my relationship with God is. I want to point her to God and let her know how much He loves her. God is showing me that whether her dad is in the picture or not, He is her Heavenly Father and will never leave her or be in-and-out of her life. God will always be there for her. Even though it hurts now, I know that one day a man will come along that will love me and Hallie Grace. God is helping me through a lot of pain and hurt but through all of this I have been given a gift from God and I love her so much. Being a teen mom is hard but God is bigger than all our struggles and is there to help us if we will let Him.
