You do what you have to do and good luck to you. It's not easy or glorious by any means, but it's my biggest accomplishment. Every parent struggles from time to time no matter what their situation is. No you aren't prepared for it but honestly who is prepared? Lol. No matter how much money someone has and how "established" someone is no one is ever fully prepared to be a parent. Just take it one day at a time and never give up and doing what you need to do for yourself and your child. If that requires state aid WHO CARES!!! There are tons and tons of people I know who are in their 30s getting pregnant and living on state aid.
