We have all heard so many depressing stories about young girls having babies in secret and either killing the baby or leaving it somewhere, where it may or may not be found.
Today I read the story of a 17 year old young woman who had her baby alone, at home, after hiding her entire pregnancy for fear her mother would kick her out.
Xochitl Parra gave birth early in the morning, alone at home, and immediately walked (WALKED!!) to the hospital with her brand newborn who had the placenta still attacked in order to receive care.
Makes me want to hug this brave girl for doing the right thing!
