Dear Diary,

I have not been feeling well, and I do not know why.  I told my friend all the symptoms today.  She told me I need to take a pregnancy test.  I was so frightened, but I got it over with.  The results were positive.  I didn't want to believe it at first so I took another one.  It came up positive again.  I had to finish off the school day in complete shock and fear.  I didn't know what to do.  I can't believe I was so stupid that night.  I must have been too drunk.  I told my friend Karen after school and she stayed with me until I had to go home.  I cried the rest of the night.

Dear Diary,
I woke up from crying all night.  I walked downstairs and my mom and dad were sitting at the kitchen table.  I knew I had to tell them right then and there.  I opened my mouth to speak and nothing came out.  They knew something was up.  I told them, and they were in complete shock.  The room was silent for a while.  And then we eventually talked about the entire situation, and I realized my mistake.  Later that day, after my parents calmed down, they wanted to inform me on facts about teen pregnancy.  My parents told me that "91% of parents want teens to be taught that the best choice for sexual intercourse is to be linked to love, intimacy, and commitment. These qualities are most likely to occur in a faithful marriage" (Martin).  I know they want me to have a quality and faithful relationship, so my baby can have all the support it needs and so can I.
