I'm 15 and I'm having a baby. I'm scared, and I don't want to mess this up. My baby is due May 27. I don't know yet if I'm going to keep the baby or give the baby up for adoption. I hope I make the right choices.....

Hey LA24.

You have already made such a courageous choice by carrying your child to term! That could not have been an easy decision. And now you have even more to consider...for being 15 that is a lot to process through. I can't imagine how difficult things may before for you now. But know you that even though things aren't simple for you at this point, the decision to give your child life will bring great rewards for both you and him/her!

A really great place you can check out is loveschoice.com. It is a really informative site where you can read about and watch video of stories about women who have chosen adoption or chosen to parent. You can also send them a message if you would like to talk to someone. A resource like this is invaluable - it will really help you know that you are not alone in any of this. There are many people that can walk this journey along side you.

You can also go to optionline.org. You enter you zip code and it will give you a list of pregnancy centers near you. These centers aren't just for girls in crisis situations. They can also talk with you about parenting/adoption options and give you some resources that you can look into.

Take some time to check out these sites and definitely look at our resource page on SUG! Lots of good organizations on there as well! http://www.standupgirl.com/girl-help/scoop-on-adoption.html

Good luck and we'll be praying for you!

Blessings,

Elisabeth

i would probably give the baby up for adoption. your so young to have one. your not financially ready. having a baby is hard. you will get barley any sleep. plus giving the baby up for adoption you will be giving him or her to a good family that may not be able to have kids. if you think you mentally and physically ready for a baby keep him or her. if not give him or her a better home.

I had my baby when I was just 14 ! It is definitely doable. I don't know what I would do or where I would be without him. His name is Dallas and he will be 2 this month! I will be 17 in December. I also still get my high grades in school and work...

I had my baby when I was just 14 ! It is definitely doable. I don't know what I would do or where I would be without him. His name is Dallas and he will be 2 this month! I will be 17 in December. I also still get my high grades in school and work as well (: I am still with the father, and living on our own too. If you have any questions or just want to talk, feel free to message me! I hope everything is going alright! (:

I know how you were feeling. i was almost 12 when i had my first baby. He was a big challenge for me but i knew that there was a reason i got pregnent and i knew it was because i had to learn how to step up even if i really wanted to still be a kid. he is five now and i am so greatful that i got to experence every moment with him. He was so small at first but they grow up so fast. so i know now that when i give birth to my son now i will keep in mind that i have to be there for every little thing. i missed a lot of Jame's life and i will always regret that but i now have a second chance to have every experence that is posible i can have with this new baby.but plz take your time to make the decition it will be a big one.
