Don't worry too much. As long as you hold your ground on keeping your baby there is nothing anyone else can do about it. No one can legally force you to give your baby up for adoption or get an abortion, regardless of your age. Speaking of age, how old are you? How far a long are you? What's your situation with the baby's dad? Where do you live? If you live in the states, there are certain state laws that say having a child immediately makes you emancipated from your parent(s) or guardian(s). So you should look into your local laws.

i second all those quesrions but i would say stand your ground. unless you are full incapable of taking care of your baby no one can take it away. i would say if he threatens to kick you out just be ready.. maybe talk to a caseworker at DHS about housing options and assistance.
