I know someone who had a baby at seventeen and 3/4 and she did a complete turnaround on her life once she held the baby. Yes, the birth was a roughie, and I doubt she will ever have another but to see the family pull together around her and helping her through those difficult first months was impressive.
Her child has a family that cared enough to help her out, and to keep everything on a even keel. The family can make a huge difference!
sanity......hmmm, I can't even remember what that is!
