Dear Laca,

On the subject of if you're pregnant before 21...

Okay so if you’re pregnant before you’re 21 you’re probably not going to be able to support yourself just yet.

First and foremost, I just want to say - if you’re afraid of what I might think - I will help you in what ever way I can and down whatever path you decide for yourself.

If you’ve decided to remain pregnant, I might even be pretty excited to have a baby toddling around the house again!

If you’ve decided to not be pregnant, then I will totally help you find a way to do that and you’ll need someone to drive you - trust me you’ll want to be put under anesthesia and you can’t if you’re going to drive yourself. And besides no one should have to be alone during such a moment in her life. I love you so much. I will always be there for you when you need me.

I love you so much. I can’t say it’ll be easy, but no matter what you’re not on your own. You have me.

And if you’re worried about telling dad, don’t worry I think I can help with that too.

As for the father, you don’t have to tell us if you don’t want. And I get if you don’t want to tell him. I remember not wanting to take up much space in other people’s lives. I will respect whatever you decide. And if you decide to tell him, and something goes horribly wrong… Well we’ll figure that out together.

I love you Laca. And your future is going to be amazing no matter what you decide.

❤ your mother
