Happy Mother's Day!
It's a good day to start my first online journal. Where should I start? I guess I'll give some background information on myself.
My name is Bonnie. I'm seventeen years old and am a junior in high school. I should be a senior, but I was held back in the 2002/2003 school year. The reason for that was that I was pregnant and missed too much school. I gave birth to my daughter, Rachel, on May 31, 2003. That means that she's almost a year old! I'm still with her father, Ryan. We have been seeing each other since the fall of 2000. He's a great dad to Rachel, and it makes me happy to see them together. I have two best friends. They are Kate and Sarah. I've known Kate since third grade and Sara since freshman year. We all are so close. We act more like sisters than friends! Speaking of sisters.. I have three sisters, Angela, Mary, and Ashlyn. I also have a brother, Todd. Angela is 23 years old. She lives in New York with her husband, Trevor, and her baby boy, Jeffrey. Mary is 19. She goes to the community college and still lives at home. Ashlyn is 14, so she, of course, still lives at home. Todd is 25 years old and lives with his wife, Karly, in Alabama. Karly is pregnant with their first child. They want to have a boy, but I think she's going to have a baby girl. We all have the same parents, Roger and Whitney. However, they got divorced five years ago. Dad moved to North Carolina and married a girl he met at work, Belinda. Mom has not remarried, but she's been seeing Tyler for two years now. He's a really great guy. Since my dad lives so far away, I like to think of Tyler as my second dad. Eight people live at mom's house. They are: Mom, Tyler, Rachel, Mary, Ashlyn, Jenna, Lance, and me. Jenna is one of Mary's friends. Her parents kicked her out of their house when she was only sixteen, because she got pregnant. Lance is Jenna's son. He'll be two in December.
