I know that you said that people who think you should keep the baby shouldn’t reply but hear me out.
Yes, I do want you to keep the baby and here’s why: There have been people who have had less to give their baby, nothing else but their grit and determination that they will do their darnest best to give their babies the best life they themselves can give.
You seem to have a deep faith and with regard to that, once in a while, I’m not saying you did this, we do tend to put words in God’s mouth and He, being the good Father that He is, allows us this and supports us regardless.
But your tears tell me something else. I have learned and was taught in college theology classes that God does speak to us also by means of our emotions. Thus, the pain and tears you may be going through now may very well be God’s way of telling you what you should do. Good decisions are normally made with a lightness of heart. Though difficult, the peace is there.
You said you eventually felt a connection to your child. That didn’t happen by chance. God put it there and He did so with a real reason.
I asked you to hear me out and here’s why: Be not afraid. Come to Christ and, regardless of the difficulty, He will stay with you and carry you and your baby.
God promises to take care of us more than we ourselves realize that we need to be helped. He knows how to help us and He will. I’m older than you are and a good part of that age has allowed me to see how God does take His children in His arms to take control and take of them regardless of their fear.
Please, do not be afraid.
God bless you.

Hun. You are right to feel this way about this child. You conceived it. Have you maybe thought that deep down these tears are because you really don’t want this child to go?
What im saying is possibly if you give this baby up you could regret it. I’m sure God wont think nothing less of you if you decided to change your mind. As long as you are doing what your heart feels:)December 7, 2007 at 7:05 pm #19843way2young
I KNOW THAT IT MUST BE HARD FOR YOU TO DO THAT. BUT PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT GOD LOVES YOU NO MATTER WHAT. YOU CAN BE A GOOD MOTHER WEATHER YOU ARE RICH OR POOR. BEING A MOM ISN’T ABOUT AGE BECAUSE MATERNAL LOVE IS FELT WEATHER YOU ARE 15 OR 50. JUST SAYING, I AM ENCOURAGING YOU TO KEEP PRAYING ABOUT IT AND IF YOU STILL FEEL THAT ADOPTION IS THE RIGHT CHOICE THEN I KNOW IT WILL BE THE HARDEST THING THAT YOU WILL EVER DO BUT KNOW IT IS FOR THE BEST.December 8, 2007 at 3:57 am #19850bweber

I can’t put it into any better words than Erick already has.
