and if anyone else feels like it, go on and post a re-introduction :) That way new people coming to the board can meet us too.

I'm Tamara, I just turned 23 and I am mom to Wren who will be 6 in exactly one month. I'm currently typing this through a panic attack because I am realizing that my baby IS in fact going to turn 6 and it scares me! Didn't I just go through this with her turning 5? I was just starting to get use to her turning 5 and now she goes and turns 6 on me! Ok... ok, back to introducing us.

I'm engaged to Chris, we've been together for 3 years (yesterday!) so obviously he is not Wren's bio-dad, and we will be getting married in June of 2004.

Wren is in kindergarten and loves it. She loves to read and write, and learn new things. She's quite the book worm already.

Well, that's me for now.

Mom to Wren -6.5

My name is Shawn. I am 19 years old. My baby is due in November of 2003. The baby's father is 19 too. We are both in college and this came up unexpected. Anyone that has any advice for this first time teen mother can you give it? I am kind of scared at this point.

I don't know about advice but motherhood is the best thing I've ever done. I loved the pregnancy, labor/delivery (believe it or not), and taking care of her. I was afraid at first because I had no baby caring experience but it all came naturally.

Congrats and I wish you well.

My name is Kristin. I am a single young mom. I am 21 years old. I have 3 sons (ages: 7yrs, 3yrs, & 4 months). I have made tons of mistakes but I have accepted the responsibilities that come along with bringing children into this world. I have taken on a new mindset. I put God first in my life and I am beginning a support system in Florida for young moms. God has a purpose for all of us. I encourage all of you to welcome Him into your heart and allow Him to show you why you are here. Do not allow your current situation to dictate your future!!! Choose to live life to the fullest with the Lord leading the way for you and your children. I pray that all of you will think about this. Please feel free to email me at if you are ready for a change that you will love & you want support!

Hi Everyone....

First Tamara, OMG! Mine DD is turning 6 in December and I am already dreading it LOL!

Anyway... My name is Clara. I have 4 kiddos...Clara (5) Katie(Turned 3 yesterday :)) and twin boys Christopher & Michael that are 17 months. +1 my son that I had at 16. He is now 14 and starting high school in August. I call him +1 because I have only half raised him as my parents adopted him when he was a baby.

I hope you don't mind me lurking and even posting from time to time. You ladies are doing a great job!
