Jon Mewett used to always use this icon, so I decided to pretend that I was that good.
99% of you don't know me, but there are a few, I am sure (I hope) that do.
I joined the forums in March of 2000, (right Ron?)
and posted nothing but happy poems for a really long time.  Then, I found what I thought was my reality and everything I posted was depressing and dull. (still sorry about that guys)
A little over a year later, I left the forums, 16, pregnant, and considering an abortion as my only option.
I received countless e-mails of encouragement and love from all of the members here at piptalk.  I couldn't have done it without you all, but I am a HAPPY mother.  I am turning 17 in March, and doing remarkebly well.
I did not stop writing, I stopped posting.  SORRY!  
My son, Andrew James, was born on December 8, and I have finally gotten time to sit down and say thank you, so here I am.
I just wanted to stop in and say thank you for all of the encouragement from the e-mails, etc.  Without all of you and my poetry spiral, I wouldn't have made it through this, so to all of you, thank you.
All of my love,
Alicia A. Renzelman

Alicia, yours was not an easy decision, but you will be so pleased in the coming years that you did not decide on an abortion.  I am glad you are "home".

Congratulations on ALL counts Alicia!! I bet he's a cutie!! Give him a smooch for me.

Things will be hard for you I'm sure, so stop by anytime you need someone to talk to or to laugh with..or cry with. This warms my heart.

Alicia, I don't know you, but from what you wrote I've great respect for you and the choice you made.
It couldn't have been an easy one and I hope you'll have support from your folks.

Salute to you, young mother, enjoy your son, for time is running fast and before you know he's a head taller then you

We've raised two beautiful girls, anytime you wanna talk? just click my envelope and I'll be there.

Thanks again to all of you.  I will be in touch.  If I ever need advice, you  can count on me stopping by!  :p
Titia, unfortunately, my parents and I no longer speak to each other.  They didn't approve of the pregnancy, and I am not living with them.  But, they will come around, he is their first grandson, and then we will reform what we had before.
I realize that I have said it 9000 times, but THANK YOU!
I will be around if anyone wants to talk.  
Much Love to all of you,

Thank you so much for the replies.  Irish Rose, look through the archives and see if you can't find a poem called "Roses, My Favorite Flowers."  For some reason, I seem to remember you, and I think that might be why.
