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.
