If you will not suffer from violence I suggest you talk to your parents about coming home. You might be surprised at how accepting your family is of mistakes you may have made in the past if you are adult enough to realise and admit that you have made mistakes.

Making mistakes or choosing the wrong path is nothing to be ashamed of. That is something many of us older people have done in the the past and will do in the future.

@runaway mommy,
I hate to said this however you are not in any position to raise a baby so if your family will no aid you, you might wish to consider the hard choices of an abortion depending on how far along you are or talking to a adoption agency where you would get support and where you could offer your baby a future.

My two step daughters were both adopted in this manner and I had hear them both tell my wife many times over the years how grateful they are for being adopted by her. One of my three step grand children is also adopted.

A side note you could have an open adoption so you would be able to have some ongoing knowledge of your baby over the years and you could pick the couple who would become the parents.

It a hard position for any 15 years old to be in and I can only wish you luck.

@runaway mommy,
Oh, OK. That makes sense.

I just saw your other thread, plenty of good advice there. What I agree with the most is to find a Planned Parenthood near you and go from there.

http://www.plannedparenthood.org/

On the right side of the homepage there is a "find a health center" search box so you can find one near you.

@runaway mommy,
They will help with exactly the things you are asking about here. They will find you local resources and advise you.

Remember, they're called "Planned Parenthood." They are about providing options to people who otherwise would have fewer options. If you have decided that you want to have the baby and that's that, they will help you figure out how to best do that. They're absolutely not just about abortion.

I really think that's your best bet right now.

@sozobe,
From the Planned Parenthood website:

Quote:
Only you can decide what is best for you when it comes to pregnancy. But we are here to help. A staff member at your local Planned Parenthood health center can talk with you about all of your pregnancy-related concerns. And we can help you get care that you need.

We're talking about the same stuff on two different topics, so to consolidate I moved my posts from this one over to the other one. May make more sense to continue on the other (more-active) topic:

@runaway mommy,
You are in a very adult situation and I would suggest you might reconsider never giving your baby up as it sadly is likely to be the best course for your baby future.

Is your baby and his or her future more important to you then your feelings/emotions?

In any case, I am an atheist but even I will say a payer for you and your future child.
