PETER, 15 and REBECCA FINNES, 13

WHEN Rebecca Finnish, of Maidstone, Kent, became pregnant at 13 and gave birth to a 7 lb 11 oz boy named Joshua in August 2000. it could mean the start of a life on dole-outs. However- she resolved to move on and Joshua's arrival inpired her to be a worthy mother which he could be proud of someday. She excelled in a teacher-training school, getting grades with flying colors and now she's about to start training to be a teacher. She's also a dance instructor. Many have said her relationship with Peter Finnis- Joshua's father- then aged 15- would never last. But- they proved their detractors wrong. They got married in 2007 with Joshua as pageboy and a daughter- Caitlin, 3, as bridesmaid.

      You have it so wrong. Why lie! Alfie wasn't the father and he was 11 at the time of this! And he doesnt live with Chantelle and her parents they don't have contact because DNA proved he wasn't the father

      What's in my mind is to attract more readers to this hubby by editing the hub title. Now it's UPDATES OF TEEN PARENTS GIVEN PUBLICITY. Next time you log on, it might be a little different. Our purpose here is obvious to capture readers interest by the title itself. To me the title is compared to a person's personality: clean, attractive, glamorous, tempting, sterling, sweet, sweet-smelling and lovable. Paulw33- thank you sincerely for your visit and soul-uplifting comments.
