The one word was “Prom.” I have a few words for that celebratory event. I did not attend. I was to deliver my first child within 2 months of graduation. I did walk and received my highs school diploma. My pregnancy went undetected because I had not shown much growth to cause alarm. I am now laughing at myself.
During this time of my life I had no professional goals or aspirations but to have a beautiful healthy son. Having my son was the second goal I had achieved to this point.
I think every young lady should attend and enjoy her prom. If she chooses wisely it may be the least expensive dance she may ever experience.
