Super proud of these two teen mums. Ashleigh and Taylor may have given birth in their teens, but their wisdom defied their age. When their children, the gorgeous Riley and Casey respectively, were diagnosed with Down’s syndrome, these two teenagers rose up and fought for their kid’s rights. They found inner strength, they battled doctors, they ignored prognoses and championed the little babies in their care.
I love these women because they show that while society frowns at teen mums, these teen mums were exactly who their children needed on their team. They are beautiful parents. Age does not matter. Love matters!
