I would put it to her this way, are you ready to be a special needs parent? Are you ready to take care of this child for the rest of your life? Because it won't be just 18 years, it will be forever with a child with a host of problems. I have a hard time imagining why anyone would do this to their baby. If you don't want the baby give it up for adoption. There are plenty of people in this world who would love to adopt a baby. People like that just make me sick, they really do.

I'm praying for her. Sad but true....this is not that uncommon.

If I live in a state that requires me to report "abuse" of a fetus, then I need to move.

There is no known safe amount of alcohol in pregnancy at any gestational stage, including the six to eight weeks most women don't know they are pregnant. Are you prepared to report every women that has had a sip of wine while pregnant? You could include my wife in this too, she had a few ounces of wine while pregnant.

Outside of reporting, talking to your friend and offering some facts may help her and her child.

There's a big difference between a few sips and downing an entire bottle in one sitting.

I'd go ahead and talk to her and give her details as mentioned in Esme's posts.

Hmmm... thanks for the advice elkpark. But sorry, I have a heart! :cheeky:
