I'm not sure if this is in the right place but it is about my son so i figured it would be the best spot
And please don't bash to hard i feel really guilty about this
I love my son to death.. but there are days where everything I do it doesn't feel like enough. Right now I'm living with my mother.. I'm turning 19 on Saturday and I am moving out for the first time next month... I'm scared to death just thinking about moving out myself.. But i also have a 3 year old that needs me.. I don't know what I'm doing at all.. Right now my grandma watches him for free while I work..
I am starting to think i can't take care of my son like a mom should and i want the best for him. But the idea of giving him up repulses me and scares me. I love him but I really am starting to believe what everyone says about teen moms. That we aren't there for our kids and our parents raised them.
I don't know what to do. But how would you go about deciding what is the right thing..

(((Hugs))) You are very mature at 19 for having thoughts like these. My best advice it to talk to someone. Adoption agencies offer services like this for free to moms who are considering placing their child for adoption. It will be a difficult decision for you with the emotions you have surrounding your son. Many people start by making a list of the pros and cons. One thing to consider is that you can choose an open arrangement and stay part of his life.
