I am 15 do you think I should giv up mi baby?
I think that no one can tell you what to do whether it's abortion, adoption or keeping the baby. It's your decision and your decision alone.
Abortion is hard and the emotional scars of what you have done will stay with you for years.
Keeping your baby would be a very very hard thing to do considering that you are only 15. You would have to provide for someone else, can you do that? You would have to put someone else's life above your own, can you do that? You would have to love that baby unconditionally, can you do that? Can you give up your teenage years to raise a child and not resent the child for it?
Adoption, an act that takes a truly unselfish person to be able to accomplish. Think about what you would be giving your child, a new life with parents that have wanted a baby and can not have one of their own. I won't lie to you, I think this would be the hardest decision to make (I don't think I could of ever given up my kids...but then I was about 10 years older when my first was born (today is his birthday...7 today)). The easiest and best way to do this would be to probably have an open adoption where you pick the parents, you get to meet them and find out what kind of people they are. In return for giving them the greatest gift possible they will keep you updated on your child's progress and send you pictures and maybe even let you meet your child.
Think about it, thing long and hard and when you've come to a decision, think some more. Remember to do not only what will be right for you but also for the baby, especially for the baby (even though you haven't had your baby yet, you are still a mother and mothers should always put their children's needs ahead of their own).
Good luck and take care
I don't think it's a good idea to be taking care of a baby when you're fifteen years old. Being fifteen, you are still a child yourself. You need to finish school and get a good job so you'll be able to have food on your plate and a roof over your head. I don't think it's really possible to take care of a baby while you're going to school. Besides...babies require constant care and attention. Your baby would need to go to the doctor several times in the first few years, you'd have to pay a good amount of money for a crib, changing, table, etc...and that's not even everything you'd have to do. Babies are expensive. You need to think hard about this...maybe do what amblessed mentioned or take a bubble bath with candles. Anyhow, you need time to think. Remember that you'd be responsible for a baby for 18+ years. Good luck! :)
I think you really need to think of the baby's interest right now and the best thing to do is to put him/her up for adoption. Please do not have an abortion. So many families are infertile and would love to have your baby. Even though giving her/him up might tear you apart...you are making another family very happy (and very grown-up of you to do!). I know several families who have been waiting to adopt for a long time. If you want to hear from some of them please let me know.
Good luck and may God be with you.
I'm adopted an, reunited with my family. I also had my first child at 16 she is now 29. No way I could give her up she was first blood I ever knew. I say keep your child. My birth mom still cries every time I speak with her. The guilt she carries is tremendous. It is something she or myself will never get back or over. Your situation will change and you will not always be 15. Adoption though is permanent. Your baby really only wants you. Good luck!
yes I think you should because babies require a lot of attention and that attention should be towards your schoolwork. if you were 17 maybe and also you would most likely have to drop out of school and get a job and since you haent finished school yet, you will get and expoitive job in a factory or in starbucks. PLEASE get an abbortion. not only will you make yourself suffer but you will also make the father and the baby suffer.
im kinda going through the same thing I turned 16 a week a ago and I fell pregnant while I was 15 now I not sure if I should keep it but tbh I think yuu shouldnt as yur still young and im sure the guy is prob 15 16 to and he isnt ganna stay around you need to finsh school 1st and then maybe think bout havin kids at 18/19 if yu wanna b a young mum
No one can tell you to give up your baby or not... Personally, I think abortion is wrong. Most fifteen year olds are in no way mature enough to raise a baby. If you can't take care of it, I would consider adoption. You should make your choice depending on the well being of the baby.
I dont think you should cause if you think about if you were not ment to have the baby then you would have not got pregnant although it is a young you can put it up for adoption and keep in touch with the baby and when you feel like you can handel having a baby have one..x
If you think that you are not going to be able to provide the BEST for your child, then yes that would be a good idea. But, it is not for me or anyone else to decide what you need to do. You should be responsible enough to make the right decision. Good luck!
Sit down in a quiet place alone - do some soul-searching and pray - over-riding factor: do what is best for the BABY...I wish you and your baby the best !!
if you mean abortion then HELL NO!! but maybe adoption for a few years, untill you can take care of the child uself! I am sorry
is this the same 15-year-old chick who had an abortion 2 months ago and is now preggerz again?..
it might be better because you are young. an adoptive family would find a precious blessing in your baby.
like up for adoption? well I guess if you want, if you mean up for abortion, NO!!!
would it make the child's life better?
