I kinda in a small way know how you feel when I was pregnant I was confussed depressed but kinda happy in a way. I was not as young as you and sounds like you have a rough life I know it is hard to make these decisions for your child. In my opinion you should only think about what is best for your child not for you. If I was in your situation I would do an open adoption. If I was any younger when I got pregnant open adoption would been my only option I would have conceidered. One you are very young and if you are not ready to give up your youth your probably not ready to be a parent. Two being a teen mom is very rewarding but very hard if you dont have support from anyone not saying it would be impossible but it would be even harder. Three with open adoption you can even choose the parents and you still can visit and watch them grow and be apart of their life without all the responsiblity which would able you to have your youth and mature. Not saying your not mature but there is always a way to grow and better yourself and learn specially that young. If you would do the adoption I know you would never forget this time of your life but learn from it. You know now boys are wrong they will do you wrong they will sweet talk you be nice til they get what they want from you then they dont care so know you are special and worth alot more that to be just a thing. The important things in life are worth waiting for so dont you think your worth waiting for? I do! I hope I have helped in some way or gave you something to think about..no decision is gonna be easy for you so think what is the BEST decision for your child not you. God Bless!View Thread
