“We Will Figure It Out”

Written by: Shelby Conn

I am not some 16-year-old who doesn’t want to ruin her whole life. I am a 23-year-old, who rents a room, has a full-time job, and will be receiving her bachelor’s degree in less than a year. I sort of, kind of, have it together in the loosest sense possible, because I am still broke and living paycheck to paycheck with thousands of dollars’ worth of credit card debt (I’m working on it I swear). This isn’t the point though. The point is, that I should be able to take care of a baby. Should. I am one of those people who doesn’t like the word no. I don’t listen to all the no’s life has to throw at me. I might be broke, but if I wanted to have that baby, I sure as hell would’ve had it and given it all the love and everything else that I have to offer. I am the “we will figure it out” person. You could tell me, literally, any situation or problem, and I would say to you, “it is alright we got this.” So why couldn’t I do that when I found out I was pregnant?
