First off stay calm. I was 18 when I found out I was pregnant. Just ask yourself is this the end of my life? No it's not. I went through this and was scared. First you do need to tell your parents, but have a plan set in place first. I don't believe in abortion, so I would not give that as advice, because I was once in your shoes and I couldn't imagine mylife if I had chose that. Do you go to church? try talking to a priest or pastor and maybe have them sit down with your parents. Find an adult that is willing to listen to you. Sit down with your parents and tell them what is going on, yes they may be upset and angry and throw the word abortion out, but know that it is your baby and not theirs. the next thing is make an OB appointment. If you need any information on adoption I can get this for you. Believe me sweety there are soo many wonderful couples who can not have children who help with your medical bills and will give the baby a good home. It's not selfish but an adult thing to do. Please just listen to your heart because you are the one who has to live with everything you chose. Amen and God bless you! Just know you are not alone:)

We have all made some decisions about our life at one point or another that we wish we wouldn't have. Giving too much love too soon can have some lasting consequences that you are now facing. Mature decisions will have to made now, with courage. It is the right thing to do to give this baby life. No matter who you talk to, understand this. Whether you decide to find a loving home for this baby, or raise him/her in your own home as it's mother, you should only be making one of these two choices. Abortion will never be justified by anyone as the answer. Please don't fall into that trap of sinful thinking.

Be strong when you are faced with telling your parents, as well as your boyfriend and try and remember.....they may or may not accept the news well, but that should not stop you from fighting for the life of this baby!! Let them go through their emotions and thoughts....it's their right. You've had a bit of time to absorb it so be prepared to let them have their say. In the end though,,,,,,,, NO MATTER WHAT, you can give this baby life and should!! Time will allow them to calm down, and I pray that they will be supportive for you. If they see that you are prepared to take the responsibility for your choices, and hear how determined you are....they may see your maturity and be proud of your decision.

If you've been brought up in a home with prayer and faith in God, then please try and take a minute each day to pray for guidance and strength to face these new decisions maturely, and ask Him to give your family understanding.

In honor of your baby, I will pray for these things also.

I also agree with the other girls, question how did you get pregnant using protection? did it brake or something? best of luck with your decision, you can do this but first you need to tell your parents and the father before you make any hasty decisions.:)

Hi there, I must agree with Meg and Enya.. please be yr baby's voice during the next nine months. I can almost assure you with 100% certainty that you will forever regret and be haunted by chosing an abortion.
I hope that you find the courage to make the right decisions. Much love and support,
Evangeline xoxo
