1. Reading this makes me sad. I used to work at an orphanage and I’m still in contact with most of those children. I wish I could adopt every single one of them but I don’t have the financial support or the skills. My boyfriend’s parents run about 5 orphanages over South Africa, and also run a clinic for teen moms and homeless people. They have such a heart for children, just like you. I personally think you are not giving yourself enough credit at the moment. You have a loving and supporting husband and if helping children and teen moms are what you want to do for the rest of your life, then I say go for it!! Continue studying and think about the differences you can make in the lives of those people! I stopped working at the orphanage cause my heart couldn’t deal with all the stories behind why the children are in an orphanage and I just wanted to cuddle and protect those kids, give them a loving home filled with love and kisses and everything they could ever dream of, but I do not have the money at the moment. As soon as I’m in a more stable stage of my life, I would LOVE to be in your shoes, helping and changing the lives of others! You’re doing a great job!

    Shew!!!! I have nothing to say!!! From what I have picked up from twitter and your blog, you are a sweet loving woman. Thrilled that you have a strong understanding hubby, I’ve got one too (so important).
    It seems to me from your post that you have decided already, you just need to see it through.
    Ok – so I did have something to say!!!
    Lots love

  3. I’m sorry you’re feeling that way about Teen Mom Support. I understand the feeling. Still wondering if it’s making any difference. Then I have a situation where I realise it IS, but getting there is hard and most days you’re just fighting against a brick wall.

    What really makes me sad (and mighty angry) for you is what you said about people’s rudeness, questioning and refusing to be involved. That people like THAT – so undeserving of your time and emotion – would make you doubt the good you have ALREADY done, is just terrible.

    Do what you need to do. Your moms will be okay. They’ve already shown you that – and it’s also in part due to what you’ve already done for them. Be happy.

  4. I think the time you’ve put in already is admirable. For the teen moms and the studying.
    Your hubby sounds wonderful & supportive, just like my Jon. We’re lucky to have them in our lives.

    Whatever you do, do what makes you happy, regardless of how you think others will feel. At the end of the day if your heart is not in it, it’s not worth it.

    Yes you have a wonderful husband however never forget you are an amazing woman.
    You have done amazing things – materially and emotionally for so many people.
    Hard decisions that only you can make, do NOT base your actions on what people think – those that truly love you will support you in whatever you do
