First ShareUnion!

Hi! My boyfriend and I just signed up for our very first ShareUnion! We're originally from Cincinnati, OH but have recently moved to Newport, KY. We will be driving to ShareUnion! We won't be able to attend the opening on Friday night but will attend Saturday and Sunday. I'm excited yet anxious to see what this weekend will bring. It will be a relief to be able to be Jonah's parents openly for a weekend, without any judgement. We're both 20, we've been together since we were 16 and we've dealt with a lot of judgement from others and the stigma that is associated with teen pregnancy. I'm excited to meet all of you open-minded lovely people!

  • Teens are at a higher risk for pregnancy-related high blood pressure (preeclampsia) and its complications, than older mothers. Risk for the baby include premature birth and low birth weight. Preeclampsia can also harm the kidneys or even be fatal for mother or baby. For more info about teen pregnancy please visit
  • So glad to hear that you are coming! It'll be a weekend of laughter and tears, as well as space to be you. I don't know where I'd be without the Share community!

  • I look forward to meeting you both!! Share has introduced me to some of the best friends in my life! Shareunion gives me an opportunity to meet with them, grow with them, and just have a great time being a mom of 2 even though one is in Heaven!

  • One of my favorite parts about Shareunion is being able to be Scott's mom for a weekend. To openly talk about him. ..This will be my 3rd Share Union and I was so nervous the first one I went too but now I look forward to it every year. Nicki
