Heavy Prayer Needed! ~sorry long~

Hi ladies, it's been awhile since I've been here.
I am with very heavy heart, as I found out Wednesday that my 15 year old DD is pregnant. I feel very strongly that it was on purpose to try to get out of the house. I don't know if you guys remember my story, but DH and I were separated for about 6 months right about 2 years ago. During that time, I was depressed and my kids stayed with my parent a lot. Hence, getting a lot of freedom. Well when DH came back home, they (DD and DS) realized that the rules would be reinforced. We thought we were going to have to move back to DFW for work, so the older kids decided that if she got pg, and DSs gf got pg, they would be allowed to stay here. Well, we didn't move, DS and his gf have since broken up, and now DD IS pg. My first reaction is to make him 'man up' and pack her and have her move in with his family (he is 17), but that would be playing right into their hands, and I cannot abandon my daughter like that. Their immaturity level really shown through yesterday at the Pregnancy Care Center.
Her attitude towards me is horrible. She won't talk to me about anything. And when she does, it is with disrespect and harsh words.
And what makes me even more upset, is the pure irony of the situation, she wanted to get out away from me so bad that she got pregnant, yet I'm the one making the Dr's appts and driving her places.
I just need a prayer of unity for my family (DH and I are at each other over this) and blessings for a healthy baby. She has not made any decision as to whether to parent the baby or put it up for adoption. Thanks for "listening".

My BFF has started going to a church here in town. The pastor there is very recently ordained, but he has years and years of experience with family counseling. So, he gives great counseling. I went to him yesterday, and today I scooped Kristen up and took her as well.l God was working in two ways, one: she showed her true colors, so he could help her, and two: she was receptive. I feel much better now. I honestly feel now, after talking to him and listening to her, she is scared to death. She is scared that if she tells us she doesn't want the baby, we of course will support her and baby father would be gone. What we tried to let her understand, is that whatever she decides WE will support her. I flew off the handle when I found out, just like she knew I would, and I totally regret it.
Sad thing, she overheard me and my mom talking about a Maternity House. I thought that was our only option, with her crazy attitude, but I know now that we have the support here.
Thanks for the prayers! I'm sorry about your DD and her m/c as well.
