Making herself a statistic...
Well we thought BM was doing good and starting to get her stuff together. Hahaha. She is now expecting her second "ooopsies" since the birth of her first. The first Ooopsies was "taken care of" but I think she is planning on keeping this baby, since it is all over FB that she's pregnant. I wish she could have waited another month so me and DH could meet our unborn LO, before having to worry about SD's life being drastically changed across the board.
Bm has been with this new guy for three months and only spends time with him on the weekends, since he does not live in our town. Actually we're pretty sure he lives in his parent's basement.
She was doing soo much better for herself, she had a posistion as a volenteer firefighter, she had a job. She was getting things together. Now at 21 she's going to be having her second child from another man and all of her plans are going to have to change.
I hope SD is the one to break out of this cycle. Her maternal grandma had a baby at 17, then another at 21, and after alot of drama she found a good guy and got married, having two more children 8 years later. It looks like BM is following in the same pattern. I hope SD does not have to go through everything her aunt did. That many guys in and out of a child's life can be scarring and very dangerous.
Thanks for letting me rant. I hope this does not take away from SD. She doesn't have much to begin with.
(Side note: me and DH were together for a year before trying to have a baby. I have a ring on my finger and my name on the mortgage, so I'm not exactly being hypocritical towards BM. We planned this out, she's just flying by the seat of her pants)
