I have a 6yr, 5yr, 3yr 11/2 yr & 1 month old! I was once in the same boat as you when I had my 2 oldest & found out I was pregnant w my 3rd. I didn't know what to do, & being so young wasn't helping either. But every child has a right to live, my opinion. I am pretty sure you will manage your new baby. God will never send something to you that you can't handle!!

Our four kids were born over the span 5 and a half years. It's hard when they're very little, but manageable, and having kids that are very close in age has a lot of pluses. Our kids are really good friends, play together a lot, help each other a lot, enjoy the same things, can enjoy the same bedtime story, etc.

Do you have family or friends around who can help? When our kids were very little it was a huge help to me just to have another adult around to hold the baby and keep me company.
