1. Introducing Emilia
Hi I'm Emilia. I'm 16 years old and I'm from North Dakota, not quite sure where because my dads an army captain and we've been moving around since I was born. I've lived around the US, in Italy where my parents families are from and many other places but we moved back to the US, to California, when I was 11, along with my brother, Eduardo who was born when I was 5 and is 11and my older sister, Marzia who's 21.
I met my current boyfriend, Josh when I just started high school in Laguna Beach where we both live but he was two years older and we didn't exactly hit it off straight away as I was his sister, Alessia's best friend and he thought I was the weird friend of the sister who crushes on the 13 year old big brother who happened to be pretty hot.
My sister was the good child when it came to in forcing the 'no boyfriend rule' but I broke every rule in my dads book when it came to guys and guys like Josh. Josh is the typical bad boy in my parents eyes, as he drinks a lot, smokes like a chimney and the fact that his brother went to jail for DUI, yet they love him for the fact that they gave him a grandchild. I got pregnant when I was 15 and Josh was 17 but we both had birthdays before our daughter, Grace Cianna Alcudio- Castellano was born only 6 months ago.
I thought having a baby would make Josh change, make him stop smoking and going out with his friends to the clubs in LA to stay home and take care of his daughter with me but he had other ideas. He keeps saying he will be there but he never actually sticks to his promises.
Josh may be the only guy I've really loved and the father of my child, but lately he's just putting me down and hurting me emotionally as he complains hr never gets to do what he wants, when I'm the one who hasn't gone out with my friends since I was pregnant, I'm the one who's trying to finish school and be a mom at the same time, me who feeds, clothes and financially supports my daughter but whatever. Our relationship is close to completely breaking but I want to save it, I don't want to show that not being with your child's father is normal for my daughter when shes older.
