Family First

Recently I had the honor and pleasure to speak to a group of courageous young women ages 14 -19 about my life and experiences as a teen mother. I was invited by Family First, an organization in downtown Atlanta that provides counseling and assistance to young pregnant and teen moms.

I know this comes as a shock, but I figured it would be best to have this conversation BEFORE the end of the year instead of around February, March when we normally chat. I know that your intentions are good. I know that your heart is in the right place, but it's not gonna happen. Let me explain why:
