Pregnant and Not Sure What to Do

Q: “Hi, I am 19 years old, and I am pregnant with my first baby girl and I am due very soon. I am very scared because I am not sure what to do. I am considering adoption, but my family and friends are not. They keep telling me they will be there to help me but I just can’t see myself raising a baby right now . I really don’t want my child to grow up without a father like I did. My kid’s father will not be around at all, and I know how painful that is. I want to do more with my life besides have a baby. I don’t know if I am wrong to feel this way. What would you do?” – Maria
