    I am 20 years old and have 2 children exactly a year apart. I am considering abortion even though I have always been against it. My family and friends were very disappointed when I became pregnant with my now 3 month old and I don’t want to have to deal with that again. I know it would be almost impossible for me to give my child up for adoption because of how much I love my two children. I am in a long term relationship and he wanted me to get an abortion until we did some research on the topic. He is now wanting to keep it but we really don’t have the means to take care of another child. I just need some advice on this subject.

    I think the thing that has me questioning this pregnancy is having my family be disappointed at me. They were very upset when I became pregnant with both of my children. I don’t like to disappoint people. I love this baby but I am just confused about how to go about this whole situation. Adoption has become a very real option now.

    Hey MotherofTwo! Just checking in to see how you are doing? I know it’s been a few weeks, but wanted to see where you are with things. If you’re still trying to figure things out, we’re here for you, and if you have already made a decision-whatever it is, we’re here for you as well! I imagine things haven’t been easy these past few weeks – I know it’s scary being faced with another pregnancy, and add to that being fearful of disappointing your family – I’m sure it’s been very hard. Update us if you can. Blessings to you!
