My sister was 13 when she became pregnant. She had my neice at 14. I was planning my wedding and my sister being heavier no one noticed she was pregnant. My mother took her th dr because my sisters leg became swollen. Turns out she had preclampsia, that's when we all found out she was pregnant.She had an emergancy c section. My mother called it a Christmas mericle and told my sister to keep the baby. Through out the months of her first year I tried to get her to give her up for adoption. telling her it would be best for them both. But my mom told her she would take her if my sister didn't want her. My neice will be 5 this year. Now my sister is 18 and on her birthday she left, with out her daughter. At first I was mad at my sister but we talked and she just wants to be an 18 year old. go to college, get a job, have fun and get married one day. She loves her daughter but isn't ready to be a mother. What would have been hard for a regular 13 year old is even harder for my sister because she is high functioning MRDD.After a long talk she is ready to put my neice up for adoption. How do I help her do that and get through the emotional heart ache of it? my mother won't be supportive of it. She is a baby collector( I come form a very large family) and she is already lieing and shutting my sister out. Thanks for answering my question.

Is the child in any way being harmed? I can't see why you would even concern yourself THIS much over a child that is not yours. If the child is taken care of why the hell would you want your mother to go through that heartbreak? A baby collector? Thankfully someone is.
