I am a 30 year-old single mom. I have a 14-year old son whom I raised alone. I got pregnant at a very early age (16, I gave birth at 17)... Through the years, I managed to raise my son beyond all the stumbles and roadblocks, but we held on to each other, coz that's the only we have --- each other. I love my son so much, no words can justify or truly describe how dear he is to me that I am willing to sacrifice anything and everything for him. I exist because of him... a mom's love is so great, i would never had known until I became a mom myself -- - can't find the right words to describe how great it feels to be a mom! Am I too attached to my son? Too protective? Or do all mothers feel the same way I do... are you a mother too? Do you feel the same way?

How lovely and simply perfect you sound. Will you be my mother? Don't get me wrong, I have one of my own, but sometimes she loves me and other times she's downright mean. Anyway, back to your question. I was the same age as you when I had my eldest son. He is now, almost 32, and I still remember the day he was born. Every single minute of that particular day. Not something I'd ever want to forget because I love him so dearly. I also have 2 other sons and 2 daughters, whom I love equally as much. There is nothing like a mothers love. Sometimes we can tend to be a little overpowering or smothersome but that's because we care about them and wouldn't ever want anything to happen to them. There are, however, some mothers out there who do not feel this way. In fact, I've seen it all too often. Sad to say. Well, love, you keep loving your wee man. And God Bless you both.

I feel the same way....my kids were my life. I raised three of them alone..and now they are all successful adults....but like you we stumbled...fell a few times but it only made us stronger...so strong in fact that it's hard for others to break into the circle! But if you think that a mothers love is a feeling that is almost overwhelming.....when you become a grandparent....well that love is even stronger! Believe me......being a mother is the greatest thing in the world....but being a grandparent....words can't describe!

I have children older than you. I still feel that way about them and will do anything I can to help them be happy and successful. I am pained when they make bad choices, and thrilled with how good they are as people. No one can love their kids too much.

Let me first say that I am proud and glad to know people are out their like you. I give mad props to you. I truly respect your tenacity and inner strength. I know your a good person at heart and you'll do anything for your child. I have friends that also grew up as teen parents and they grew up just fine. Education is a hard thing to pursue because you have so much to love and cherish each moment when you have a child. I had friends that love their kids no matter what, but when they got older they also wish they could love education as equal but I understand why it was difficult at times. I protect my son and my daughter now and I will do anything for them even if it required me to put my 4 homes down and take all my savings out for them. The reason I say that is because I was one of those teen parents that fought hard not only for my kids but for my educations to bring in a better home for them. I try my best! I know you do! God bless
