#MineToo

I was young but I knew better. I was told to not get a girl pregnant and I never thought I would. But then I met her. I thought she was hot. The evening was going great. We had sex after drinks.

When we recently caught up with Faylone she shared a little more of her story, hoping to encourage others. Having taken two pregnancy tests at home, I was so surprised to see both with double lines. I needed to know whether these home pregnancy tests were accurate so I went to Hope Women’s Centers for free pregnancy testing. When the results came back the …
