Hello I am a 23 year old female and
thought that I was totally in love with a 30 year old male. I knew that he was
involved with someone else and still proceeded with the relationship. Needless
to say I am now pregnant, at least a month and am scared more than anything. This
child would be a mixed child and although I have no problems with that my family
I have dealt with this decision for more than three weeks and continue
to come to the same conclusion I have to do what is right for me and the unborn
child. I cannot handle this responsibility and it would not be right for me to
bring him or her into this world.
I know there are other people out there
who have come to this same conclusion --
