I was in your shoes 7 years ago. A little younger (we were 19 & 21) living with a room mate as well. We could barely afford our bills and I had a high risk pregnancy so had to go on bedrest in the early weeks so couldn't work.
We were most definitely keeping baby even though we had wanted to wait for babies until we were stable. We were so very stressed the whole pregnancy, especially my boyfriend. But in the beginning, I was probably around 8 weeks, I went to the laundromat. I was doing my laundry and a couple with 2 kids came in. You could tell they were poor. But they were so happy! It made me realize we could do it!

We didn't have wealthy parents but mine helped us by letting us move into their rental house. We had to pay rent but the rental was in reconstruction so they only charged $300.

When our son turned 1 we bought our 1st vehicle and when he turned 2 we bought our first home!!!! We are so very blessed!

Moral of the story, It may be hard times now but that can quickly change!
