Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

A child is a blessing... Do what's best for you! I don't recommend foster care.. I know so many people who ended up in foster care and it screwed with there heads.. they didn't grow up in very good homes.. Just follow your heart.
No that's not true but sometimes it can happen if you're 12 to 14 years of age. I'm not pregnant but sometime I have asked that question to people who have gave birth when they were 13.
That is a cruel thing for her to say to you.I'm sorry you have to go through that.
