Ran Away with Girlfriend
Posted on: 12/03/2006
I have ran way from home to find me and my girlfriend a home. It's kinda like a romeo and Juli thing for our parents don't like each other and are trying so hard to get one other just completely out of the neighborhood. See it's kinda like a community town were everyone gets a say. So some how me and her meant each other and got oh I don't know how do you say tide in strung deep head over heals in love. So we ran away. We were staying in a hotel and she seduced me and well i got her pregnant. So we went home and told them our problem. Now were never to talk to each other and we want to keep our baby but they wont let us there forcing a abortion a murder on something so small and innocent it kills me Ive bin begging for them to give it up for adoption but, no. I just want it to be alive and happy for her to be happy too, even if I'm not there to be the one to do so. No matter what I do I cant save our baby. So she ran away and didn't even tell me. I can't find her she can't do it alone she can't even drive shes only 15. They think I'm hiding her when the truth is I'm so heartbroken that she would take my baby and all my true loves wishes and all my passion with her. It's all my fault. All she wanted was my love and a way for them not to separate us anymore. It's just so much worse now. It's not just me and her on the line of a lonely life but our poor baby as well. What can I possibly do? I'll do anything to find her make sure she is safe and save our baby. Even if i don't take what it's got to be a father.
Dear Teen: This sounds like a very serious situation of a 15 year old pregnant girl who has run away from home. I assume the authorities are trying to find her and obviously she needs help. You are both responsible for the pregnancy but she is the one who will ultimately decide to keep the baby or not. If you do happen to hear from her I would strongly recommend she go to a professional licensed counselor who could help her make the decision and figure out the best alternatives.
