  • A combination of all of the above along with a non-bias counselor. Emotions are bound to be high and emotions on edge so I feel an outside party should be there to help things go smoothly.

  • What the heck is a 13 year old girl doing getting pregnant? If she displays the bad judgment to get pregnant at that young an age she does not have the ability/capacity to make any GOOD judgment about that baby. Which set of grandparents wants to go back to being a parent of a newborn all over again?

  • Me, I would go ask a lawyer. Who has the right.  Because if I had the legal right. My 13 year old would give the child up for adotion.

  • the girl should definitely be the one to make the decision, but the parents of the girl should be a part of it as well.
    In my opinion the boyfriend and his parents don't really have much of a say in it.

  • The girl, but i think the parents of the girl also have a huge influence in the situation.
