I've made friends with a couple Muslim girls in London. The one girl's husband and father of her 4 children (2 surviving) raped his 13 yr old niece, who is now pregnant with his baby.
Because of the culture, and being from Yemen originally, the girl is running to live in a shelter to stave death.
Here's the rough part... she asked me to adopt her child. She told me that the baby had to leave from where her family could find it, or they'd kill it. She also made it very clear to me that if I chose not to, she would abort.
I don't want to live with the guilt of passing on saving a life, even though I KNOW it isn't my fault I would still always live with the knowledge and ask myself about what could have been.
What do I do? I have two young children of my own, under two, but could make it work. She has no interest in finding another family, or looking at all.
Help! What would this cost??

Contact a Lawyer that specializes in International Adoptions. If you choose to do this, protect yourself by going by the book and legal in every way. Have everything written legally on paper so you know exactly what is required from you financially.
