  • It's no one but the 15 y/o's choice. If she has them, she can keep them. You can explain options, but, she may not want to or care.

  • Moms need to do what works for them, regardless of age. Yes twins are a lot of work, I would bet that the girl needs support not advice and she make the adoption decision herself (once they come)

  • How about your friend seeking some counseling for the girl? Have her try to locate some teen pregnancy resources.

  • p.s. that 25 year old should be ARRESTED!

  • Even though its sad that shes pregnant at 15, its her choice..... Support her the best way you can, without pressuring her. The more you push her to give them up, the more shes going to hold it against you & fight you. tell her her choices.

  • maybe the father of the twins will be helping? or his family? i don't really think it is anyone's best interest to try to force a young woman to give her children up for adoption. the girl has issues, and who wouldn't, really.she probably feels like her mother and father gave her up, and she might feel like she can do better than that. counseling would be very good. also, she needs to really take extra good care of her body and eat a ton of food!!!

  • I agree that some counseling would be good for her for many reasons, not the least of which is that she might be more open to talking to an unbiased third party who knows the right questions to ask and who doesn't have a history with your step daughter. I would also have her watch some of the show 16 and Pregnant from MTV. It shows a pretty fair assessment of those girls' lives, or seems to at least. If I had seen that as a teenager I think it would have scared the crap out of me. Not that you want to scare her but I doubt she truly has any idea what she is in for and it will be a tough road no matter what she chooses. There was a couple on the first season of the show who did go with adoption and it was heartbreaking to watch but also inspirational to see them make such a hard choice for the good of their daughter.

  • i would support her in every way u can! its going to be hard for her and she will need help! its to bad she got pregnant but it happens and we just need to make the best of it! good luck!
