Location: United States

Caption: "When I met my first boyfriend, it wasn't really about the sex part. It was the fact that I had a boyfriend that was so great. My friends kind of looked up to me because my boyfriend was in high school. I was hanging out with the popular clique. I wanted to be friends with everybody who was cool. I ended up getting pregnant around the end of my eighth grade year... When I was pregnant with my daughter I didn’t want to get an abortion. Being pregnant the second time around with my son, I looked at my daughter and I figured that I couldn’t kill a baby. That's all." -AMY
