147. If the girl decides to give the baby up

for adoption perhaps the girl and her parents will eventually heal their relationship. If she chooses to keep the baby then perhaps the she and her parents should go to the courts and have her legally emancipated. If the parents are that angry with their daughter it is hardly a good situation to force all the parties to be together. The girl may find out that being a single parent at such a young age without a good education or job is very tough. I am a big believer that some people need to learn life lessons the hard way.

My step-son was dating a young girl who virtually moved into our house. I did not find out until I came back from a short trip out of town that this girl actually had a 18 month old daughter (one of the neighbors told me). My first question - who the heck is taking care of this child while her mother has virtually moved into my house? I also had become aware that she had a drug charge pending in the courts. I didn't even think twice about picking up the phone and calling Child Protective Services. I told them what was going on and asked them to please make sure that this child was being adequately cared for. I believe that the child was taken away from the mother.
