EDIT: We were told not to aid my 16 year pregnant niece
My sister in law informed me that my 16 year old niece is 20 weeks pregnant and she wants to keep the baby. She wont even think about adoption. My sister in law acknowledges that is her choice but her and her husband has informed all of the family that they do not want any of the family helping her with money, food, a place to live, or anything. Their reasoning is because she says that she wants to grow up and have this baby now then she is ready to take the responsibility. I do not know how I feel about this. she called me today asking if she could borrow 20$ because her and her boyfriend were living in the car and they did not have any food. I guess she knows I am the weakest link in the family. I hate seeing people suffer. I am so torn on what to do . I want to give her the money so bad but if i do this and my husband finds out then I am not sure how he will take it. I feel like I am damned if i do and i am not sure if I could live with myself if I don't. Some advice..please.
EDIT: I wanted to put your minds at ease so you guys wouldnt think me and my DH wasnt letting a pregnant teenager starve. My DH just pulled up for lunch with her (not her bf ) in his pickup truck. She is staying with us. He feels the same way I do. This is our niece, we cant throw her out on the streets. He is talking to his sister today and letting her know she is here, lol...... I feel relieved. Updated quick I know.
