I slept with a married man and now I'm pregnant- 36 weeks with a girl.
He told his wife when I was 12 weeks and they decided they want to raise my baby and they want me completely out of the picture.
When she's born they will be taking me to court to try to adopt her and relinquish all of my parental rights. They said it would be best for everybody if I sign willingly, take $15k for a "fresh start" and disappear.
:-( he used to tell me he'd leave his wife for me now he's trying to take my baby to let her raise it. What would you do?
UPDATE-Since there are so many replies I will answer some questions here.
1. Thank you to all of those who offered advice and support. I'm contacting some local agencies to see what kind of resources are available to me.
2. I'm not interested in giving up my baby. I want her to have the best life possible with her dad and I but if it's not an option she'll always have me.
3. I'm not a druggie or anything. I've made bad choices but I learned A LOT.
4. I haven't been in the news or anything. This whole thing has ben hush hush. Nobody is trying to buy my baby they are just offering me money for hospital bills, moving, getting a fresh start after baby etc. this isn't uncommon for adoptive parents.
**Thank you all for telling me to get help. There is a legal aid program that is going to help me fill out any and all paperwork. They connected me to another caseworker who said I qualify for housing, SNAP (food stamps), and TANF (cash)! Now I'll be able to comfortably raise my baby girl.. I do work but not much especially because of pregnancy.
