  • If you truly couldn't keep the child, then probably adoption, or fostering, but there must be some way. Arranging to live with a friend or relative for example, in exchange for services- housecleaning, or splitting expenses.

  • Adoption would be a great option in this case.

  • We had to put our son in a drawer instead of a crib (no we didn't close the drawer! lol) but if there is no money for one then perhaps adoption is an option. It's not an easy thing to do but it is a kind way to provide for your child.

  • Well I am totally against abortion I feel that it is murder!!! I believe that it is gods decision on rather to take a baby out of this would not yours or anybody else's! Their are so many people that really want babies and cant have them so If you really can not take care of it than put that baby up for adoption!! You can meet families and decide the best family for your baby if you want to!! I was in the same situation you are in now a few years ago and I didn't have the money or room and didn't know what to do but after I seen my baby I couldn't give her up It would have killed me! God dose not give you anything you are not able to handle! I truly believe that!! Good luck on your decision!
