How should I respond

My mom has been on a rollar coaster of emotions since I told her I was pregnant, first she wasn't happy than she was now she's telling me to get an abortion because I can't do it and she's not going to help me. I'm 32 have my own house work & raise my almost 8 yr old daughter.

  • Do not get abortion! If you can take care of yourself & your daughter & your baby growing inside of you, GREAT! Don't let anyone not even you mom steal your joy & excitement! Have you asked for her help? If not why does she feel you need it? I have known several women who have raise their children themselves while working. I have a very close friend who has 4 girls. She is raising them on her own since she divorced. She was going to school & working. Right now she is focused on raising &loving her children & working. Do not let anyone tell you what to do with your life. Praying for you, your daughter & your little blessing inside!
