*Elana's Story

I'm a 21 year old girl. My baby's father, my boyfriend is from united Arab emirates and I'm Hispanic. I want my baby but I'm not sure if I can deal with my pregnancy by myself. He says he loves me but that we are young. I still have 2 years to obtain my bachelor's degree and he just started studying. I don't know what I'm gonna do because he's leaving to his country after he graduates. I think this is a blessing but our cultures are so different that I'm afraid.
