1. Meet me

Hi, I'm Victoria. I'm 24 years old and I'm a mom. Aged 16, I gave birth to my daughter, Everleigh Jude Johnson and her dad was my childhood sweetheart, Tyler. We broke up when Everleigh was 7 months old and it was tough being a single teen mom. 

A couple of months after the break up, I met Alex. He had been in a few of my classes and we soon got friendly. We started dating and after a year and a half together, I fell pregnant again aged 17. A month after my 18th birthday, Alex and I's beautiful baby boy, Lincoln Owen Winter was born and Alex and I decided to get married, so on our two year anniversary, we married in Long Beach, California, a 5 hour drive from our Atwater, CA home.

Not long after the wedding, I fell pregnant again aged 19 and Alex and I split as he cheated on me. I spent my pregnancy depressed but I stayed strong for them 3 year old Everleigh and 1 year old Lincoln.

On June 14th 2014, Ariana Rose Winter, my second little princess, was born. Alex and I never reconciled so we started divorce proceedings and moved on. I packed up my life and moved 40 minutes away to Modesto. 

I met Jake pretty quickly after the move when I started college classes. Our relationship moved pretty fast and under a year into our relationship, I was pregnant once more, aged 21, and in 2013, baby girl number three, Aniah Sofie Miller came along in January 29th. Jake and I got engaged, but we drifted apart and broke up. He moved to Fresno but he still sees Aniah.

9 months after Aniah came along, I met Ryan. He was a couple years older and had a child of his own, Kaden. We got close and started dating. We're now married and living happily in Modesto raising our family. Everleigh's 8, Lincoln's 6, Aviana is 5, Aniah is 3 and Kaden is also 6. 

Everleigh sees Tyler often and he's happily living in Manteca with his girlfriend. Alex doesn't care about Lincoln and Aviana and lives 6 hours away in San Diego with his replacement kids. Jake is amazing with Aniah and has her all the time. 

I'm currently studying for my degree in social studies and I hope one day to become a social worker dealing with teen moms. One day, I'd love for Ryan and I to have our own baby, but for now, this chaos is enough.
