I turned away my younger half sister in her time of need
Back story, about a week ago I get this call out of the blue from my father, which is weird because he's already called me this year, and that's usually about how often I hear from him.
Anyways, he informed me that one of his other 11 children, my 15 year old half sister, who I don't even think I've met but once or twice, is pregnant. Her mother has decided to kick her out, and she has nowhere to go. Apparently she has nowhere to go, and he thought to call me to see if I could help her. Because he remembers how big my house is from the one time he's been here in the 2years I've lived here.
I said no. But I'm starting to feel bad.
The thing is, I am also a teen mother (well, was because I'm out of my teens now) but I had my son at 13. And I know how hard everything is. But also, I don't want to be a handout for her.
But if I don't help the poor girl, what's going to happen to her baby? Ugh. It's been weighing on my mind a lot. I know if either of my daughters got pregnant as teens I would help them no questions asked. But this girl, even though we share a father, I don't feel is really my sister.
But maybe helping her out would change that. Ugh, I don't know. I don't know what to do.
Oh and apparently we're both due in November. So we have that in common I guess.
But I don't know if I should let this stranger essentially in my house, especially with her soon to be newborn when I'm also expecting one, too.
Just so confused.
What would you do?
