A young woman gets pregnant out of wedlock.
This is her story.

07/29/2011

Dear Baby;

To my child,

Baby,

Exactly 10 minutes ago, I peed on a pregnancy test.

Exactly 7 minutes ago,  it turned out positive.

Exactly 6 minutes ago, my life melted in front of my eyes.

I've been trying to collect myself ever since.

First off, a couple facts about your mum. I'm 17. Almost. I live in Tulsa, that's in Oklahoma. I'm a preacher's daughter. I've been with your dad for 2 years, and I was going to leave him soon. Now I'm not so sure.

We may have to get married.

Oh, Christ. 

The End
