  • Why would she lose her job because your pregnant? When you have a child, you are automatically considered an adult in some states. I'm confused here.

  • I don't think that they can take you from your mother. However, I did know someone whose daughter got pregnant as a minor and told her that either the daughter would have to get married or she would be charged with neglect. Although, there is A LOT more to this story. I am sure your fine. As for your mother's job, I would like to think that your mother's job wouldn't be in jeopardy. It's not her fault you got pregnant. My suggestion is that you think these things thru a little more before going down this road again. I'm not judging you, but it sounds like you're concerned for your family, and now is a little late.

  • Don't get guilty trips that don't belong to you. You have enough in your plate as it is. Focus on completing your high school and try to get an even further education that is the best way you can minimize the impact of your actions in your life.

  • It is against the law for them to take your mother's job away. As far as can they take you away??

    NOOOO!!! Unless your mother is abusing you or keeping your from getting proper nutrion and health care there is no reason for them to take you away.

    Also in many states you are now legally considered an adult. Check the laws in your state.

    REALLY??? Grow up. It always amazes me how many un-thought through answers pop on here from people who choose to act their IQ instead of their age.
