ok so i really need some advice, if you can help me in any way please send me a PM.

My little sister Sierra just came to me today and she told me that she is pregnant. She is 16, while i really don't have any room to judge her and i absolutely never will because i had a baby at 16 too, i cant help but to be completely worried for her, she isn't with a boy who she believes she could actually be with and raise a child with, she is defiantly not at a point in her life where she could be responsible enough to raise a child, she has admitted to me that she has been doing drugs and i cant help but worry about her health and the health of her child. i really have no idea what to do about this, of course i will always be here to support her but i cant help but be disappointed in her. i will take any advice i can get.

I think you should gently suggest adoption for her baby. They have lots of different types, she can have an open adoption where she and your family can have contact with the little one. I think if shes doing drugs and definitely showing signs that shes not responsible or ready to make the commitment. I would try and show her there are other solutions...

HUGs to you and your family..

I can't give much advice, but I can tell you about my own experiences. I had a friend get pg at 17 and although she wasn't with the boy, she decided to keep the baby. We were all there to support and encourage her. Maybe just talking to her about what she wants would be a good place to start.

That's a tough situation. I had my daughter at 17, but I was not doing drugs, and I didn't care whether her father wanted to stay with me or not. It was a choice I had made and was going to be responsible for it.

With that being said, if you think she's mature enough to raise this baby, I don't see any reason why she shouldn't. Of course, adoption is always an answer, but only if she can stop doing drugs for the babies sake!

Please let us know what she decides.

Take care!
