Adoption (open or closed) is always a great option but not easy!
I felt the same way, I kept my son though. I tried going to school but when your baby gets sick you have to stay home, then you get sick from your baby and have to stay home longer. I ended up dropping out. My boyfriend is in college and doing soooo well. Our son actually kept me and my bf together when I didn't think I wanted to be with him, good thing to because I am soooo in love with him still. So a child can make a relationship but it can break one too.

Good luck.

Have you spoken with anyone about adoption yet? I know there are some resources out there. If you'd like I can try to locate some for you.

God gave you a baby for a reason, if you love the father you will find any and every way to keep this baby and make it work, but if your just not Ready, choose adoption, theres many couples who would love to have a child but can't.
