Shiela's Story

My name is Sheila, I'm 25 years old and have 2 wonderful children. I got pregnant the first time when I was 15 and had her when I was 16. The second pregnancy happened when I was 20. My kids are now 8 and 4. It was very devastating to have a child when I was so young and know what most of you are going through.

My kids and I are doing great though, we have been through a lot, but we are still standing.

August 1998
