Listen to what our clients have to say about being a teen parent, and how Generations Ahead has helped them.
I got pregnant in high school and have dealt with, and I'm still dealing with, people saying it ruined my life. People telling me I could have done more and better things if it wouldn’t have happened or if I wouldn’t have let my boys have their lives. But without them I wouldn’t have pushed myself to graduate. I wouldn’t have gone to college. High school was rough and people were mean. But my boys gave me a reason not to quit and not to give up. When I’m sad or cry they come and give me hugs and kisses and love me unconditionally. They give me purpose. To those that say I’m missing out, I’m just not partaking in underage parties and being out till 3am. Instead at 8am I’m being told "wake up mama- I love you". 💕 They didn’t ruin my life. They gave me hope, love, and purpose... and I’ll always love them! (Breanna 2019)
