I am a single mom of 3 teens, the youngest just found out she is pregnant. I'm at a loss for what to do. I am a single mom, recent college gradute and just finished cancer treatments. I feel so selfish to feel like the next chapter in my life is being re-written against my will. Things have been so hard for so many years and my now-pregnant youngest daughter has been challenging thus far in many ways. I want to be a supportive loving mom who guides her through this scary process yet I'm just tapped out emotionally and financially. If she terminates the pregancy she is likely to fall back into depression and anxiety, yet if she has the baby, how will she finish high school and care for another human being... I think I'd prefer she terminate the pregnancy but would never ask her to do this as she would only resent me later. I don't want my life to go this direction and her having a baby affects me just as much as it affects her. Please help me communicate the options to my daughter more effectively.
