Hi @joanne - I really hear your frustration and can totally understand it. I want to reply with honesty and with kindness - forgive me if I get the mix wrong
True story: I was 18, studying nursing, needed a flatmate. My Mother had recently remarried and was overseas. My 17-y-o sister moved in with me during her last year of high school. ANYWAY 3 months later I noticed she still hadn't started the contraception I'd taken her to the doctor to get. "Too late". We talked about termination but she didn't want that. Then she decided she would give the baby up for adoption. Tears and teeth-gnashing all around. Six months later baby boy arrives, all family take turns in night feeds and other chores. She worked as a waitress for 5 years then when her son started school she re-did her HSC and got into teaching at Uni. Following that she got a Master's degree. Her son is now in hiw 30s, owns a very succesful business and has 3 through beautiful kids.
See? Any why shouldn't you have a happy ending too? We are all making it up as we go along @joanne. So glad you checked in. Even if just so you know "someone" is listening to you.
