Jo-Jo did not use contraception with her boyfriend because he did not want to and she was afraid it would ruin the 'mood'. When she became pregnant, he dumped her. Two years later, aged 21, she is a single mother who urges abstinence for young women. Jo-Jo did not figure out she was pregnant until her fourth month and her boyfriend's immediate reaction was to say they should either abort the child and stay together or break up. But by the time she made it to a doctor it was too late to legally abort and her boyfriend decided to end the relationship. 'I finally told my parents and they were very supportive,' she says. 'We came to Mother's Choice and I decided I did not want to give my daughter up for adoption because she is my blood and none of this is her fault.' Life completely changed for Jo-Jo after the baby was born. She was initially reluctant to hold her child because she felt she bore a resemblance to her ex-boyfriend. She now loves her daughter dearly but feels she can no longer be flippant about her future. She knows she has to make good money for her child's future, raise her well - and think twice before getting into a relationship with another man. 'In the past, it was very easy for me to get a boyfriend but now I tell them from the beginning that I have a daughter - and I have to think about whether he would be good to my daughter,' she says. 'I would like to tell girls to be strict. You don't really have to have sex, but if you must, be strict about using a condom.' One of the biggest lessons Jo-Jo learnt was the importance of communicating well with your parents because 'at the end of the day, they will always be there for you and support you'.
