I take full responsibility for my part in this and I understand how stupid I must look but I really need some advice. I just found out I am pregnant with my third child. The father and I have been together for almost five years and have two other children. I can't financially support another child, the father and I don't live together and never have. He hasn't really supported our first two, he gets jobs then loses them a couple of months later, he spends his money on alcohol and other frivolous items. He finally has had a place of his own that he has had for a month so far. It is like a motel room, one room small kitchen one bathroom. Anyways he isn't very attentive to our first two daughters and hardly wants to spend time with them, basically it's to hard for him to handle I guess. I have mentioned adoption but he refuses and I finally told him that he can take this baby and raise it himself then. But I think he would try and give it back to me seeing as though his days are basically working and hanging out with friends, drinking and smoking. I can not afford to take care of this child right now, I want it to have the best it can and to me that means a family who can take care of it and show it all the affection and attention it deserves. Anyone have any advice?
