Sam was 9 weeks pregnant when she enrolled in the TOPS program and attended Yavapai County High School. Sam had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and struggled with depression throughout her entire pregnancy. She became a regular attendee of TOPS Support Group every Monday where she received referrals for the PPD hotline and counseling options.

Sam delivered a 7 lb 14 oz baby boy in May, and 3 days later walked (with assistance) in her high school graduation.  Sam continues to attend TOPS Support Group and shares her experiences to other teen moms and is enrolled in Proactive Parenting classes. Sam is enrolled, with a scholarship, at Yavapai College for fall 2013. We are so proud of you Sam!
