When I found out I was pregnant, I was devastated. The father wants nothing to do with the child and wanted me to have an abortion. I am Pro Choice, and I have always said that I would have an abortion if I ever got pregnant. I am only 20 years old, I can barely take care of myself, let a lone a child. But when it came down to it, I couldn't do it.
I knew that someone out there would love my baby, so I decided to not get an abortion, it felt like it was the right thing to do. I also knew my aunt and uncle were looking to adopt so I went from Kansas City, Missouri to Boston, Massachusetts. My uncle is a doctor, and they offered me a place to live and are taking care of me, anything I need.
I thought it would be a little vacation. I hang out in Boston for a few months, maybe stay and get an apartment and go to art school, who knows. But here lies the problem. They are Messianic, if you aren't familiar with that form of Christianity, then "Jews For Jesus" pretty much covers it. They are very much so into their faith. They also already have 3 children who are all home schooled.
I had a conversation with my aunt last night and discovered not only is she a theist who believes in Creationism, she is a Conservative Republican (which usually go hand in hand) who thinks Sarah Palin "is a very intelligent woman" and declares "all I watch is Fox News!"
After that conversation, I really started to question myself. Should I really be letting these people raise my child as their own?! Or Should I try to take care of my child by myself?
This is the hardest decision I have ever made in my life,
I do have 7 months to think about it, but I would like to hear some thoughts on this,
please someone help me make the right decision! lol
