Oh honey..perhaps Iam not the best one to give you advice because everyone's situation is different.However, I have been on both sides of the coin.My
mother gave me up for adoption at birth.I did grow up knowing I was adopted, and feeling unwanted.I since found my birth family, but the connection
did not establish, and I still feel unwanted.
Now..I found myself pregnant at 15.My boyfriend was 19.Because I too am against abortion, and because of my own adoption experience, I chose to keep
my son.He is 20 now.Iam so proud of him.
Many people think you need to give a child up because you financially can't give them what they need.
Honey, I grew up with everything I financially needed.What I didn't have, was love.You can't buy it.If you love this baby and want to raise it,
there are ways you can do that.I don't want to influence your decision because I don't know what else is going on in your life.Of course there are
many childless couples who would make wonderful parents.But it is devastating to a child to find out they were given up.They will seek answers to
questions.They will feel incomplete.YOU will always wonder where they are, how they are doing.Are they happy or sad.
Make sure you can live with whatever choice you make.
Good luck to you my dear, best wishes for you and your baby.
