    [font=Fixedsys]I SWEAR THIS ISSUE IS NOT ABOUT US PEOPLE ITS ABOUT CUTIECAT.
    [font=Fixedsys]I THINK THAT YOU SHOUD DO WHAT YOU FEEL IS BEST LOOK AT YOUR LIFE IF YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE READY FOR A BABY THEN HAVE IT IF YOU HAVE A GOOD MAN TO HELP YOU THEN HAVE IT IF HAVE A GOOD INCOME AND YOU WONT HAVE TO BE ON WELFARE THEN HAVE IT EVERYONE IS ALWAYS GOING TO TELL YOU THAT THERE ARE SUPPORT GROUPS THERE IS THIS THERE IS THAT BUT IN ALL ACTUALITY NONE OF THESE PEOPLE THAT ARE TELLING YOU TO HAVE THE BABY ARE GOING TO COME OVER WHEN YOU NEED HELP. THEY WILL NOT FEEL THE PAIN THAT YOU FEEL IF YOU WERE TO GIVE IT UP FOR ADOPTION. ALOT OF THESE PEOPLE ARE THE WRONG PEOPLE TO ASK. I AM SURE THAT YOUR A STRONG GIRL NO MATTER WHAT YOUR DECISION HOLD YOUR HEAD UP AND STICK TO ITAND KNOW THAT IT WAS THE RIGHT THING FOR YOU. NO ONE CAN MAKE THE DECISION BUT YOU. NO ONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO INFLUENCE OR CHANGE YOUR MIND EITHER DO WHAT YOU THINK IS RIGHT. IF YOU BELIEVE IN ABORTIONS THEN YOU SHOULD NOT TAKE ADVICE FROM CRAZY PROLIFERS CAUSE ALL THEY WILL DO IS MAKE YOU FEEL BAD AND TELL YOU ALL THE BAD THINGS ABOUT IT.

    Just makes me think about the older kids and teens that are waiting to be adopted...

    Refresher on the topic: "have you had an abortion?" Seems some people have taken this thread to mean "please post your opinion on abortion" or "please tell the OP what she should do with her life and her decision".

    Key phrase being HER DECISION.

    I know I wrote this question a few weeks ago but now I have decided to have the baby with the help of my boyfriend, of three years. We have the support of our families and although we are very scared of this new journey that niether one has done before, we are excited and happy. At first because of my age and our financial situation, I thought I should have an abortion because it would be the "easy" way out of the situation......after thinking about it and having some nightmares I prayed to God to let me know in some way if abortion would be the right thing for me to do. That very same night I had a dream that when I went to sleep I put my hand on my stomach and I could feel the baby's heart beating. I felt a huge sense of relief and comfort in this and I feel that for me it was God's answer to my prayer. The next day I told my boyfriend that I was not having an abortion and that if he didn't want to have the baby then I would give it up for adoption; I would rather do that then destroy what was growing inside of me. I do not have anything against anyone who has ever had an abortion but for me I was torn just thinking about doing it and all the guilt was overwhelming. I was an emotional wreck inside. My boyfriend said he wanted to keep the baby and now we have decided that it will be a difficult journey but the most rewarding one we will ever have and nothing in life is easy. I believe the things that take the most work are the most enjoyable and rewarding in the long run. I know in my heart I will have so much love for this child and I would never regret it being born. Once again thankyou to everyone for all your kind words and prayers......it was amazing to have people reach out to me that I don't even know....thanks to all those that PM'd me and there were so many that I didn't reply to but let me tell you your courage and stories mean a lot to me. I will never forget the kindness found in this forum. THANK-YOU!!!!!!

    Cutecat...I am so glad that you came to some resolution!!! It's amazing what prayer can do, isn't it? There is never a really perfect time to have children and if you wait for that time, you could be waiting forever. God gave you that baby for a reason...someday maybe you'll know what it was. CONGRATS!!! Keep us informed of how it's going and feel free to ask any questions...so many of us have been through pregnancy and childbirth and are more than willing to share.

    Since the original poster has stated her decision is made and the question is resolved, I am going to close this to minimize any further flames on an otherwise volatile topic.

    Best of luck to you .
