Alexandria Vera, a 24-year-old schoolteacher from Houston, Texas, has admitted to having an eight-month affair culminating in an aborted pregnancy with her 13-year-old student.
Investigators said that the illicit relationship began after the boy contacted Vera on Instagram, and they began having sex over the course of nine months.
One fellow student told KTRK that the pair’s flirtation spilled over into the classroom, where the boy once was seen grabbing his teacher’s behind.
Vera claimed to investigators that the boy’s parents knew what was happening, approved of it and let their son stay over at her house and were supportive of her keeping the baby.
No one gets through life unscathed. And while it is 0% your fault that these things happen to you, it is 100% your responsibility to deal with the aftermath of what your situation has given to you.
I had one client a few years ago who blamed all of his life’s shortcomings on the fact that his father had been largely absent during his childhood.
Having emotionally unavailable parents is a hinderance, no doubt. So is having one of your best friends die. So is being raped. So is being bullied for years. So are a lot of things that happen to people, every day, around the world.

“The hour was early; the morning still, warm, and beautiful. Shimmering leaves, reflecting sunlight from a cloudless sky, made a pleasant contrast with shadows in my garden as I gazed absently through wide-flung doors opening to the south.
Clad in drawers and undershirt, I was sprawled on the living room floor exhausted because I had just spent a sleepless night on duty as an air warden in my hospital.
Suddenly, a strong flash of light startled me – and then another. So well does one recall little things that I remember vividly how a stone lantern in the garden became brilliantly lit and I debated whether this light was caused by a magnesium flare or sparks from a passing trolley.

Pennsylvania Church Holds ‘Blessing’ Ceremony Featuring AR-15 Rifles
Worshippers in a Pennsylvania church clutching AR-15 rifles drank holy wine and exchanged wedding vows in a commitment ceremony.
The event at the World Peace and Unification Sanctuary in Newfoundland, Wayne County, led a nearby school to cancel classes.
The Rev. Sean Moon leads the controversial church. He and his wife are known as the king and queen. Moon said in a prayer Wednesday that God gave people the right to bear arms. He held a gold AR-15 rifle throughout the ceremony.
Moon is the son of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, a self-proclaimed messiah who founded the Unification Church, often described as a cult, in the 1950s.
