She has a friend who was a teen mom and offers Kirsten’s character ‘real world’ advice. The movie ends after Kristin’s character gives birth and leaves many realities of being a single teen mom out of the movie. All in all, it’s a good story that focuses on the relationship between Kirsten’s character and the father of the child and how her family triumphs over adversity. The story is more of how her family, her friends, her relationship with her boyfriend are all affected by the pregnancy and her personal struggle with her feelings and the other characters regarding the pregnancy. worth seeing a young Katee Sackoff in the film too in a very small part.
