Jonna had just come out of a two-year relationship when she had a one night stand with her neighbor. This was the night she conceived. When she found out she was pregnant she was beyond scared, she gathered up a group of her friends to help her tell her parents so that they wouldn’t be so hard on her. They approached her mom first and she was mad but took it better than Jonna had expected. Then it was time to tell her dad. Jonna had one of her friends go tell him first and then he called her into the living room alone and asked her if it was true. Jonna said yes and he was infuriated. He proceeded to call her a “whore” and told her that she would never become anything in life so she should just give up now. He was also adamant about the fact that she should give the baby up for adoption.
Jonna thought about adoption a lot but in the end she decided to do everything in her power to make sure that she would be there for her baby no matter what. She was heartbroken about her dad’s reaction, so much so that they fought constantly. Eventually Jonna decided that her living arrangements were too stressful for her pregnancy so she decided to move out. Her father was FURIOUS. He threw her clothes in her face and told her to never show her face again. He also said he would NEVER love her baby.
Jonna moved in with her baby’s father who didn’t live too far from her own home. Their relationship ended up flourishing and they got married. On February 20, 2007 her son Robert was born. He weighed seven pounds nine ounces and was perfect. Needless to say her dad ended up falling in love at first sight. He was so proud of Jonna for the decisions she ended up making and he apologized for the way he acted and told her it was because he was just so scared for her and he didn’t know how to express it. Jonna felt so accomplished. Her life felt complete.
Jonna and her husband have now been married for six years and couldn’t be happier. Jonna now has four kids at the age of 22. She knows it’s a lot for her age but she thinks she was made to be a mother and she wouldn’t have it any other way. She loves children and is honored to have her life taken up by her four little wonders. She would like everyone to know that four is her limit though because she had her tubes tied after the birth of her fourth.
Thanks for sharing Jonna!
