Please fill out the following optional information before submitting your rating:

Your options may seem limited, but they are definitely available. They can help you determine the destiny of your baby and the type of atmosphere he/she grows up in.
The following are your two main options:
  • Parenting: If you choose this option, not only will you be able to watch your child grow up, you will be preparing yourself for one of the greatest and most rewarding experiences ever. However, a lot of responsibilities come with parenting, which you must realize now and accept. Parenting is a lifelong commitment to your child, promising him or her the best care possible, undying love, financial, physical, emotional, and spiritual support. Your main question right now should be whether or not you are prepared to take on this kind of responsibility at this point in your life. Will you have the needed support from loved ones necessary to carry you through this?

If parenting your child is not possible, adoption may be your best choice. Even if you have any doubt in your mind right now, or your answer is "no" to the above question, take a look at your second option.

  • Adoption: If this is your choice, you will still have to go through your pregnancy. During this process, the placement of your child with another family will occur. You can even help in determining which home might be best for your child, and choose to have ongoing contact after the placement. You need to be comfortable knowing your child is in good hands, and who better to determine that than you?

I'm 16, female, and my parents are kind of... scary. My momma is more open-minded whereas my step dad gets angry in a snap. My boy friend is going to be turning 18 in two weeks and I don't know if my parents will or will not send him to jail because of our age differences. Could they press charges against him for statutory rape even though it wasn't rape at all? How do I tell my parents that I'm pregnant? Should Tim (my bf) be there? Please, please help?!! Thank you to whoever helps.! #1
