"Because I'm a young mother, people think I'm not capable of looking after my child. Everyone is amazed when my son is happy and well. I haven't been checked by childcare for a whole month now, and he's still alive!"
At age 17 you still have your dreams. In the case of Sandra, Jasmine and Jennifer they are called Jason, Armando and Tanijsha, and the eldest one is just 18 months old. Sandra is planning a small family with her boyfriend Marcel; her second child is on the way. Jasmine has found three godparents for Armando and hopes to finally have a calm, relaxed year. Jen- nifer thinks that a mum and dad should live together, but it just didn't work out with Mwathi. When you are practically still a child and pregnant, it's not only your belly that grows.
