mY SISTER is a 17 year old mom. Now she's starting to go to school and do her college degree. I'm very proud of her because having a child did not hinder her to go to school. Because of her decision to go, I'm the one paying for her since I'm going back to college next year. I stay at home after work and my father and I alternately look after my nephew. I just can't help but be happy that she is trying to achieve things not just for her but also for the baby. I hope she keeps things focused and not messed up this opportunity.. What about you guys? have you tried going for the things you want to achieve for someone?

It is very sweet of you to stay at home and take care of your nephew while your sister goes to school and tries to get things together for her and for her child. Right now I am focused on earning online as I am hoping to help get money for a downpayment on a house for my husband and I. I want this for me, but also for him. Well Back to earning! Hope your doing well!

We were looking at doublewides but have found trailers seem to be cheaper, so we'll go for that. A downpayment would be about $5000 which is very achievable in an agreeable amount of time. I'd say if we pushed we could it in six months but we're giving ourselves a year. Though I am pushing myself online to earn so that I can help in any way I can until I can find a job. Yes Privacy is always a good thing, and one thing that would be different for us but very nice. Plus just being able to sit in "our chair" in "our kitchen" would be great. Hope all the best for you.

Ooooh. Trailers? Hmm that's what I usually see when I'm watching American movies. I haven't seen trailer houses here in my country. If there are trailers just the prominent ones owns it. They have the state of the art things inside to. I hope that some could think about that. It would save much bigger space I think. ^^

I hope youe sister appreciates all that her family is doing to help her and shecan pass on to her child that sense of responsibility. I suppose that I have done some things for my direct family (my husband and my children). But that doen´t count. It was not a sacrifice.

Your sister is lucky to have a family like yours. God bless your kind heart, too.:-) I had tried going for the things I wanted to achieve but not because of myself but because of my kids. I wanted them to be proud of me as a Mother and as an individual. Right now, i had to put things on hold first because my youngest, a three- month old is very dependent on me. But, once everything is ok, I'll start pursuing my golas for them.;-)

you are a person to be admired to ms. ureee... You are also doing things for you to support your children. I hope moms should be awarded for these kind of things. I know just base on it that you are a good mom and your children are very proud of you!

Well, she should be happy and thankful that she is getting all the support from you. Otherwise, with the baby to care for, it would be difficult for her to continue with her studies. I really admire you for being such an understanding and supportive sister.

hey cutie!! I'm not perfect. I am the greatest nagger. I'm overly protective when it comes to her and sometimes I forget that I'm over the line. I forgot that she has a family and doesn't need to be reminded always and she knows what she's doing. I'm just human who feels that I should protect her as her older sister. I learned my lesson a bit about not barging into someone's business. I have all the right to but just to avoid confrontations I better keep my mouth shut. ^^

My sister got pregnant when she was in third year college. It was a tough time for our family since my dad wanted us to finish our studies first before we get married. I come from a family of four girls, so that is why my dad is a bit strict with us. My sister stopped school for a year and we were fortunate enough to have the resources to hire a babysitter. We did do our share with the diaper changes, tantrums and feeding times. My nephew is now two years old and my sister just got married to the child's father a few months ago. I now see my dad's wisdom in not letting them marry right away. Our family is okay now and I am happy for you and your sister as well.

Good thing that you have a very supportive family too. everything matters and it would really allow us to be able to lend a hand. confrontations and misunderstanding are always present but a bit of patience helps. I wish you and your family well!

Hi Dear, This is so touching that she decided that nothing should keep her down. am pretty sure that she has accepted the way things are and that your dad decided to give her a second chance. most fathers would kick their girls out of school and home to go and get married to their baby's fathers. The act of her deciding that this is it and she has to get back to school must have been orchestrated by her knowing that she has a mouth to feed and that one day you people are not going to provide for her but she will have to by her own self and efforts to feed and dress the baby. I have to appreciate the fact that you have kept aside your interests in that; you will work to pay fees for your sister to work whilst you take care or her baby yet you have your own interests. believe me she will appreciate you efforts later on in life in a big way that you will bee humbled to tears. Keep on encouraging her and let her know that the future is in her hands. i once had to delay in college since my parents could not afford to pay fees for me and my younger brothers and i had to skip a year so that they may get through high school and am glad they managed to finish school. Nice Day..!

My father is the high pride type but he moved and erased all that away and even baby sit for her. I hope she does and I really wish she does. Thank you so much for your kind words I'm deeply touched!!1
