If you don't want to 'be a mommy' again... maybe the two of you can sit down in the morning and talk about an open adoption. That way he would have two parents who are ready and able to care for and raise him, but you and your daughter can still get updates and even some visitations. That 'might' be the best solution for everyone.

I'm sorry. I can't really imagine being in your position. I would want to raise my grandson, but then... I wouldn't.

My cousin gave birth at 15 (over 2 decades ago now) and my aunt pretty much raised him until the mom finished high school. It worked for them.

Your daughter is probably very overwhelmed and sleep deprived right now (what new mom at any age isn't?), but maybe there is another compromise in there somewhere... like finishing school online or... ??
