I am a 23 yr old mother of three children. Twins girls are 2 yrs old, and my son is 3 yrs old. I currently live on afdc because of the lack of jobs in my area. I get $708 to live off of each month only because I am pregnant. (7 1/2 month along) I have had to make a decision that will alter my life forever. My significant other and myself have decided to give this baby Im carrying up for adoption. I feel like because Im broke and have no more room in my home, I can not afford to keep her. I have met with the adopting family and they are really loving, kind people. Im excited for them but at the same time I cant help but hate them because they have everything I need and more to keep my family strong and together. I cry every night wondering if Im making the right choice. Bills and 3 toddlers are really getting to me. I need to know how I go about letting my fionce know I need time for myself sometimes and maybe some suggestions on how to cope with the anxiety of it all being pregnant.
