I'm really not sure what to do.

I have five children under the age of seven and until recently was married. I've been married for 8 years now but recently my husband left me. After this I had one night where I left my children with a babysitter and went out and unfortunately I got pregnant. I know this was irresponsible, but I was just trying to blot everything out and this is the only other person I have slept with other than my husband/ex soon. The thing is we're real tight on money and I don't know what I'm going to do. With five kids as it is and my husband nowhere to be found now he's run off I'm pretty desperate. But I don't believe in abortion. And I'm just stuck. Advice please. Thank you ladies.

  • Have you thought of assistance? Foodstamps, WIC, etc. Some people who qualify get help with utilities as well and maybe rent. I would look into that first. There is alot of help out there for you. Contact your state dept of family services to find out more info on assistance. Have you thought about adoption?
