I have been going back and forth between keeping my baby and giving it up for adoption. I am only 6 weeks 5 days and it’s getting harder every day. I am feeling everything and more. I know that what I am doing right now is most likely the best thing for my baby but when I think about what could happen I feel like things are not going to be right. I am only 16 but I have a feeling that what i am doing is the best thing. If you agree with me please tell me!
I can’t tell you which is better for you, adoption or keeping your baby… but I CAN tell you that you’ve already made the right choice in giving your child life and not terminating the pregnancy. 😉
You have lots of time to decide what to do. But it sounds to me like you are already growing attached to the baby growing inside of you. And THAT’S OK! It’s your child. In either case, you will need to surround yourself with people who support you. Have you already shared the news with the father and our family?
trust me it may be hard but keeping your baby will be well worth it! your child will eventually know that him/her were adopted and like most children they will question why.. well what would you tell him or her as to why? what if you have another child and decide to keep him/her and the adopted child questions why you loved the other more than them.. i have a 2 year old son and i tell you what i could not imagine answering those questions and i could never live with knowing that someone else taught him how to walk or what i would have missed!
