i know someone now who is in BIG trouble. she is pregnant. she is not married. she is only 20. her problems: she is still in school, the moment the school will know that she is pregnant and not married, she would be expelled. she is on her last semester. :( what worries her more are her parents. her father. she cant tell them because she knows for a fact that she will be disowned. her "boyfriend" is also not yet done with school, and doesnt have a job. how can they raise a kid? she is very confused.. we're not that close but she texted me asking for help. i told her my advice that no matter what she do, thats already there. the smartest thing she could do is to face the consequences of her actions. she is not ready to have a child. she have thoughts of aborting it (God forbid). but now she is changing her mind and decided to keep the baby. (Thank God!) why are young adult nowadays are getting into that hole more often? i mean, havent they heard of protection if they really cant wait for the DEED to happen? and when the result of what they did is something life changing, they go run away from those consequences. hahay... so sad..

Congratulations!!! thats good to know. its a blessing from above. well being pregnant means a lot of responsibilities. my friend cant raise the child, because she doesnt have work yet and havent finished school yet. soo .. its really hard for her not being ready.

It is not easy. I have no wisdom in this discussion. I can only commiserate and wish them all the courage and will to survive. It is not the end of the world and they are not the first ones to be in this situation. Maybe something good will come from this.

This kinda things are not that easy to control because human feelings are involved.. Unless it's planned, if not, nobody will really think about protection and consequences, most ple will just think they wun be so unlucky to get pregnant.. WHat your fren can do is to try to hide from the fact that she's pregnant, and her father side, no parents will blame their child forever..
