Daily Story: 18-Year-Old Boy Got a Girl He Didn't Love Pregnant

Not everyone handles responsibility the same way, but many a grown adult would not have handled this situation the way the young man in this Elite Readers story did.

I’m a general manager at a car dealership. When my daughter was 17 she went to a party. At that party, she met a young man with whom she hooked up with and she got pregnant.

She didn’t tell us who the father was.

One Sunday afternoon, many months into my daughter's pregnancy, I was sitting outside enjoying the view and an iced tea when this old pick-up truck pulls up and a young man jumps out of it.

Now for the purpose of the story, let’s say my daughter’s name is Stacy.

This young man approaches me and says, “Are you Stacy’s dad?” I look up and say, “Yes I am, are you here to see her?”

He goes, “No, sir, I’m here to talk to you, may I sit down?” I said sure, and he explained himself – an 18-year-old boy, just finished high school, not very book smart, and with no real future.

I had a hunch where this was going. He then said, “I understand Stacy is pregnant.”

I go, “Yes, son, she is.”

He says, “I’m the father.”

I replied, “Figured as much, so what’s going on?”

He said, “Well, I don’t love your daughter and we shouldn’t have done what we did. However, I’m soon to become a father without a good income. I know you run multiple car dealerships and one can make good money selling cars. I want to come work for you so I can make enough money to support my child and be a good father.”

I looked at him and said, “What kind of work would you want to do at one of my dealerships?”

He said, “I want to sell cars, I want to be a salesman. I hear you don’t need a degree and if you are willing to work long and hard hours, you can make good money.”

I nodded and said, “Yes you can.” I then said, “Now son, you've got guts coming over here telling me you got my daughter pregnant when you don’t even love her and then asking for a job…”

He then said, “I figured this was my best option of finding a job to make enough money to support my kid.”

I said, “I want you to be at my dealership tomorrow in your Sunday best at 8 AM, do you understand?”

He said, “Yes sir.”

I said, “Now go, I’ll see you tomorrow.”

That was a good 10 years ago. He’s now a store manager and one of the best hires I ever made. He is also an awesome father of 2 (he met and married another woman and had a child with her).

He shares custody with my daughter. Now I’m not saying he didn’t make a mistake, and I’m not saying that their situation is ideal.

But what I can say is that I admire the hell out of that young man for owning up to his responsibilities and being a real father. I know there are a lot of grown men out there who would not have done what this kid did.

If you appreciate the way this young man handled the cards he was dealt, share this story with your friends and family. Not all men accept their obligations, as in the story below.

A 26-year-old Alabama native Latoni Daniels who is currently serving time in prison has been found to be pregnant with no recollection of any sexual encounter.

Daniels is currently serving time on a murder charge for her participation as the getaway driver in the robbery and shooting of 87-year-old Thomas Virgil Chandler.

She was not pregnant when she was put behind bars, and 17 months later, her family believes she was drugged and then violated, and have demanded a full investigation.

Her brother Terrell Ransaw is doing everything he can to find out the circumstances surrounding her pregnancy at Alabama’s Coosa County Jail.
