What do you mean? She is pregnant or wants to be?

All you can do us support her. She is going to have a tough road ahead of her. Encourage her to continue school, to take care of herself by eating healthy, and preparing her for the massive responsibility of motherhood. She is young but she made the decisions that lead to this.

If she's already pregnant than support her but DO NOT raise that child for her.

Make sure she has information on all three options, abortion, adoption, and parenting, then let her make her own choice. Support her, but make her accept responsibility for her actions and choices.

Send her to this group, encourage that she take parenting classes(ask her doctor about free ones in you're community)

I was 15 when I found out I was pregnant with my first child. 16 when I had him. My mother cried at first but, she supported me and helped me. When the baby comes let her do pretty much everything but, help her get through high school. I probably couldn't have did it without my mom. Also she could research adoption! That is also another option. I am happy with the decision I made in keeping my son. I am not sure if I would have been able to do it without a support system. It's very hard but, she can do it. My story had a happy ending not everyone has to be a statistic! I graduated high school went to college the father and I got back together later on when we were 18 and got married we are now 24 been married for almost 6 years and we have 3 boys now! :) life is good! God bless and good luck!
