Created based on the belief that when small groups of people committed to doing good things get together they make better communities. In line with their B Corporation commitment, Grouptrail has initiated a program that will donate a portion of upgrade revenue to support The National Crittenton Foundation’s BOLD Program.
I was 15 when I got pregnant. I didn’t even know how to change a diaper and now here I was having a baby. I was scared and confused out of my mind: what would become of me? I had a rough pregnancy; I was always sick and depressed. My baby was born premature and only weighed 4lbs. 11oz. I cried every time I had to enter the NICU. It made matters worse for me to hear things such as ‘What is this little girl doing having a baby?’ You just learn to ignore people.
It’s human nature for a parent to brag about their baby. You want to let the whole world why YOUR baby is the best and people gift you their time, their attention, and their willingness to listen you boast. For the past three days I’ve been able to do just that – talk about my other baby: BOLD (Bridging Opportunity, Love and Determination).
