First off, never let someone emotionally pressure you to abort your baby. You are the one who will have to live with that decision for the rest of your life, who knows if he's going to even be around by the end of the school year. Whether or not he's ready to actively father this baby shouldn't influence your decision about your baby. If he doesn't step up to the plate and take responsibility that's his problem.

You already know where your heart is, and you can find the strength to do this on your own. Just because you don't have the father's support doesn't mean your alone, and I'm sure you can create a support network of friends and family to help you raise your little one.

You are this baby's mother and no one should try to make out that their part in this decision is bigger than that-- especially not someone who's focused on his own convenience. Best wishes sister, and just remember that there is a great, supportive group of women here on justmommies, many of whom are in your same shoes.
