Pregnant Teen Confronts Boyfriend About Leaving Her… His Reply Brings Her To Tears
One of the biggest responsibilities given to us by God is that of parenting. Parenting is more than just bringing babies into this world and giving them food and clothing.
Raising a child well involves a lot more than providing for their basic needs. It involves nurturing, loving, guiding and teaching them. It’s a tremendous amount of responsibility, one which mature adults find challenging, let alone teenagers. It is not uncommon for teenagers to become parents. Some teens turn out to be great parents, though, despite their youth and inexperience in life.
Caitlin Fladager was just a teenager in high school when she learned she was pregnant. Faced with such a daunting reality, she could have chosen to run away from her responsibilities and given the baby up for adoption after giving birth, but she accepted the consequences of her actions and stepped up to the job.
She not only accepted her responsibilities as a young parent, she showed exceptional parenting.
Caitlin and her boyfriend Noah fell in love when they were young. While still in high school, she became pregnant, something that terrified her. The adults in her life were not supportive of her at the time of her need, shaming her and scaring her by telling her that Noah would most definitely abandon her and their child.
She was worried by how the adults assumed he would handle the situation, so she confronted him with her worries. Noah did not give her answers right way. Instead, he told her to wait and see. When their daughter, Arianna, was finally born, Noah showed her in no uncertain terms how he was going to handle the situation. Noah was there for Caitlin every step of the way.
Soon after Arianna was born, he proposed and the young couple got married. In a recent tweet, Caitlin shared a picture of Noah holding newborn Arianna alongside a picture of him fixing a ribbon in her hair recently, saying:
“My husband was only 17 when I got pregnant with our daughter & I was told to expect him to leave. 4 years ago, when I asked him how he would be different than any other teen dad, he said ‘I guess you’ll have to wait and see so I can show you.’ He definitely did.”
Noah made a commitment to Caitlin and Arianna, one that he continuously honors. Caitlin suffers from anxiety problems, but she does not have to worry about looking after her child because Noah is always there.
In another one of her tweets, she posted pictures of her daughter and husband, writing: “Every month this year, my husband has taken our daughter out on “dates.” He brings her home flowers, helps her pick out a dress, and takes her out to split a dessert with him. It’s become a tradition.”
The couple has a second child, their son Jack. Together, Caitlin and Noah have shown that you can be good parents despite being young, you just need to love and trust one another.
