Unwed Teen Mom
You have a most difficult job. But we are cheering for you. What a courageous young woman you are. It may be tough, you may get lonely, but you are going to make it. Just remember GOD HAS NOT FORGOTTEN YOU!
If you are interested in getting an education, please know that most communities have an educational outreach center. And for single mothers, there is a LOT of available help, depending upon the state.
The first place you should start is the regional office of education. If you don't know how to get in touch with them, call a local high school and talk to a guidance counselor as to where you can get your GED and what childcare programs are available. There may be some help or classes through the education offices. Also, if you prove yourself to be a good student and study hard, there is usually college scholarship money available for GED students.
The next place you should contact is the local department of human services or welfare office. Explain your situation, tell them that you want to go to school and ask what childcare assistance they can offer.
Also, the health department has huge resources. Tell them what you want to do and they should also be able to hook you up with all sorts of help.
Please do not take your life. Please allow time and God to heal your heart. I know that you are hurting. But others have been where you are,and have walked, one step at a time, out of the darkness.
You will too. You are going to make it.

Here's what I recommend to you:
Don't do anything to harm yourself. You are so loved. Please give your situation time, please allow God time to move. He may be waiting for you to give in to Him, to say, God I will trust you, no matter what. Try trusting God and see what will happen.
Also, please go in for a medical checkup and tell your doctor about how you feel emotionally. Your doctor may have medications that can help you get over this 'bump' in the road.
Also, I highly recommend counseling. You may find a pastor in your church or other local church or some other professional who will understand and help you with your struggles.
WE ARE PRAYING FOR YOU!
