i turned 18 two months ago and i found out two weeks ago that im pregnant, almost 9 weeks now, im not sure if i should give the child up for adoption but i have found a couple that want the baby, its really hard to decide because i dont have my family's approval of being pregnant as they want me to get an abortion, and the father does not realise what having a child means, so im basically alone in this and need advice.. The doctor said its a miracle that i fell pregnant because i have PCOS, and that it might be my only chance to have a child, but im so young and my mind keeps changing about thew decisions i make

I found out I was almost 2months pregnant the day before my 18th bday. im now 19 with a 9month old son who i wouldnt give up for anything. i cant say its been easy but hes my lil monkey and i love him more than i thought possible. not judging is you decided on adoption but i am curious. also im in the same boat with the whole father thing. my sons father didnt really want anything to do with a baby, he loves him and all but doesnt really want to help. and honestly, even almost a year in im still having trouble getting help from him

Have you decided on adoption? My husband and I are unable to have children. Would you be willing to consider getting to know us?

You have your whole life ahead of you and if you are meant to have a child and raise it then you will get another miracle when you are older if you decide to go with adoption.

No they want a closed adoption, the only time i will see thew child is when i see them, but im sure that would be even harder

Could you maybe have an open adoption so you could see the baby? I know some families who adopt don't like having one, but it might be a good compromise for you.
