I really wanted to parent my child even though I was young.
My boyfriend unfortunately wanted to have nothing to do with the fact that I was pregnant. He told me numerous times that he wanted me to go see an Abortion Clinic in Staten Island and "get rid of the baby". I finally realized one day that my boyfriend is a jerk and I no longer wanted to be with him anyway. So I went down to CPCNY to look at my alternatives to abortion. They helped me speak to my parents and we all decided that as a family together we would help to raise my child and give it the best care that all of us can.
