How much is too little?

One of our good friends came over to stay for a week recently. She has stayed with us before but I never really paid that much attention to how long she took to get ready each day. By 'get ready' I mean from the moment she walks into the bathroom in the morning until she… Continue reading How much is too little?

She fell pregnant at the tender age of 18 and was subjected to the disdain and ridicule that so many teen mums face at the time when they need the most support and assistance.
