Tell us about yourself and your family:
My name is Hannah Whisman. I am 15 years old and have a beautiful son Gabriel Alexander. He was born August, 1, 2014 weighing 9 lbs. 5 oz. I have an amazing boyfriend, Victor, who has been here for me through everything and is an amazing father to our son.
What were your biggest concerns when you first found out you were pregnant? How did you handle it?
When I first found out I was pregnant, I was already 18 1/2 weeks . My only concern was how my family was going to take it since I was only 14 at the time. I handled finding out I was pregnant very well. I was scared and worried but I wasn’t going to give my baby boy up. I love my son more than anything in this entire world!
What kinds of things do you do to treat yourself, for fun and to stay relaxed?
I just take a nice long nap with my son when I need time to relax.
What are your favorite things about being a mom?
My favorite thing about being a mom is just being able to have my baby boy finally in my arms and watching him grow and learn new things everyday.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? If you didn’t have any obstacles, what dream would you pursue?
I see myself in 5 years graduated, starting my own bakery, and moving somewhere in the city with my boyfriend and son to start a bigger family.
What advice would you give to other young girls who just found out they’re pregnant or recently became a mom?
Never give up, no matter what you’re going through. You’re doing this for your baby. You can do it! I did at only 14. Now I’m 15 and I’m still staying strong because whenever life tells me to give up, I tell myself: Don’t give up! You’re doing this for your son.
