None of what is or has happened is your fault. NONE OF IT. You didn't kill your mother; she died in the process of birthing YOU. You are alive for a reason. And yes, I understand what you are going through, not trusting. How can you trust teachers and cops when they've betrayed that please, consider contacting one of the hotlines listed on my stories page, depending on where you live, in order to talk to someone confidentially; not necessarily to report, but to talk. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

i found out the worst of it today
by: Amber F

i found out i am pregnant. i really can't believe it i know i can't raise a baby in that house i can't breath when i think about it

I can't imagine how you're feeling now. Just know you have a lot of options. Whether it's abortion, adoption, raising the are in control of your life now.

You're 17. Are you still with your dad or far away? If you're living with him use the resources on this site to find a place you can go. There has to be a hotline that can direct you to the correct place.

Next counseling - you need it. You need to talk to someone and you need to learn how to cope with your emotions. Having a child is a very emotional job (I'm a parent).

If you decide to keep the baby, take parenting classes, read books. Knowing the developmental stages of a child will help you understand...what the baby can understand. When I was growing up I was punished in a way no one deserves, so I had to look into parenting message boards, books & websites to LEARN how to discipline correctly.

My heart goes out to you. Your story is NOT your secret to keep. It's your fathers dirty secret. You did not kill your mother - bleeding killed your mother. And unfortunately it's a VERY common part of childbirth, less common in modern times. This road is choose your actions & reactions from now on. You are your own person, you are a survivor & you will thrive.

By the way, Courage to Heal is a great book. It really helped me.

My Blessing For You
by: Sai Kit

Hi Amber,

Your experiences with your teacher, police, and biological father make it hard to believe in someone. It's how the oppressors keep you in the dark. They betray again and again, and lie to you repeatedly to make you think you are helpless.

Be a fighter, fight for your baby, fight for your own happiness and future. You can be a girl, a kid, and still be strong. You don't need to return evil for evil, but goodness can be tough too. You must believe that you can make it out there without your dad. You must believe that someone, somewhere will offer the help that you need.

Never stop looking for help. If someone turns out to be a disappointment, next.

I will be able to get a job soon. I will donate money to case like yours. He shouldn't be your guardian any longer. Find some good people and ask for their help. It can't be worst than your situation. If you go out, I am sure there is at least 95% chance you will find a better situation than where you are at right now, and for your baby.

I don't want to say this, but really, the choice is yours. You are the only person who can change this situation. If you decide to get help, you will get well. Be courageous. I know that most experts or professionals would say something like "oh poor things". But I think the right thing to say to you is to be courageous. Only that and taking the right actions will you be able to move on and beat your fate.

Hi Amber,

Hi im cleo and i'm 16 i totally agree with the police thing my Father abused me physically and emotionally and in the court case to prove that he was abusing us we had tape recordings of him abusing us actual physical evidence and still they didn't believe us and said that i still needed to have a 'relationship' with my father and should keep seeing him. They had and have no idea there all idiots. about the baby thing i don't know what you want to do with keeping it or adoption or abortion personally i don't believe in abortion but its your decision. i'm gathering that your still living with your dad. And you have to get out ignore the police and teachers that won't listen there stupid but KEEP telling people eventually someone will listen even if it's a friends parent or if you have a really good friend and go stay at there house as if he follows you or hits you at there house they can act as witness'. But with a child you have to realise that you're not just responsible for one life now but two. i don't want to scare you. But you don't know how your dad will react or how he treats you will effect the baby and for your saftey!!! You will be ok everything will work out but you have to percivire and KEEP telling people i know it maybe hard at times but you have to have faith that there are good people in this world and that not everyone is heartless (it took me a long time to realise this) and someone will help you. GOOD LUCK!!!

nobody deserves that
by: BMW Princess

NO child deverves abuse for any reason. there is never an excuse. I find it helpful to say It's not me it's you,or it's your problem not mine helps. imagine your talking to the "person" who hurt you.

social workers?
by: Anonymous

Hi, Amber. I hope you are well and that things have worked out for you.

In the story you posted, you mentioned teachers and police, but no social workers. I find it surprising that the police investigated and not a trained child welfare social worker. I wonder if you would have more services available if you reported this to a social worker perhaps via on of the hotlines listed?

Be well.

My two cents.
