I just wanted to pop in because I've been in your shoes. I was a single pregnant teen and I suffered from depression. My daughter didn't magically 'make it all better' but she gave me something to work for. She's my motivation to do better and try harder. I'd say the first six months after I had her I was a wreck mentally and emotionally. I even thought about giving her up for adoption when she was 4-5 months old. Now, I'm glad I didn't though. Like I said she's been my motivation. Now I have a house, a car, a career, and I'm getting my degree. I don't think I ever would have done any of that if I didn't keep my baby! GL and best wishes!
