Well, I just dropped my 16 year old daughter off at at friends from school's baby shower. What do u think of that Mel? I don't begrudge this child her happiness, or her right to choose, but she is going to have a very hard life from now on. I asked Sydney if she knew of her options when she found out she was pregnant, I really don't know if she did. So, Syd being my daughter, and very well versed on the subject told her. I would not wish this on any child, but I can tell u this, if it were my daughter, she would not be having a baby. I can hear u all now thinking how hypocritical it is that I adopted and would make mine abort. I know for one, their little bodies are not finished growing, how are they to carry a baby to term? Then there is the emotional side., and what about school, who takes care of the baby? Who pays for it? I know first hand the pain the birth parents go through to make anotjers dream come true. Sydneys birth parents John and Missie are my friends. We have a very open adoption. They have had full access to her since the day she came into this world, as has the rest of the family. But I saw the hurt, and it killed me. They were not young and stupid, it was just very bad timing for them. I will always be grateful to them for my beautiful girl. I love them with all my heart It does not change my mind though, it should always be OUR choice to choose for ourselves. Timing is everything. If we let others choose for us, then we stop being a free country.
