Yesterday I was sitting in church in my hometown,
And I noticed an abundance of pregnant girls...
Yes girls, they were all eighteen or younger, unmarried, un or underemployed and pregnant,
For the life of me I don't understand...
Is it that young ladies are so desperate to have something to call their own,
Or is it because they are church girls and parents, for whatever reason are not talking to them about contraception or gasp...more importantly sexual safety...
One young woman is the sister to a young lady who had three babies by age twenty,
So surely she knows the consequences....
What in the world is going on...
And what touches me, frighteningly, more than anything else,
Is this indicates how many young people are playing sexual Russian Roulette...
Why in the world aren't these mothers or some woman in their lives not having conversations with them....
Later in the day I see a young man who has several children,
With several women,
Can barely take care of himself,
But women are hopping in the bed with him,
Unprotected, getting pregnant,
For the life of me....
I just don't understand,
Why the young sisters will just throw caution to the wind,
And engage intimately with a man,
Who they know is slinging it all over town,
And add a child to the mix...
Could someone please explain it to me,
Because FOR THE LIFE OF ME....
I am without understanding or comprehension...
I just don't understand...

Angelia's ability to help our teen moms see themselves as she did was a special gift. She instilled within them a desire to make better choices, take control of their bodies and their lives. They realized their pasts didn't have to determine their futures. Angelia let them know their worth.
