“There is an unspoken agreement that life stops once you become a parent. Instead of hiding behind your pregnancy as the excuse to not pursue your career and life goals, I want to CHALLENGE you to take charge in making parenthood look however YOU wanted it to be…When the father of my baby asked me to get one after we found out I was unexpectedly pregnant, it really hurt me. I felt like he was attacking everything I loved. Yeah, I was shocked when I found out I was pregnant, but it was still a dream come true even though it happened sooner than I had planned.”
