He told me to consider an abortion

I'm 19 years and 8 months pregnant, my ex-boyfriend is 25 years. My ex-boyfriend and I had just separated when I was 2 months pregnant. I never thought that we might separate because we were always happy, but when I told him that I was pregnant, he thought I was joking and when he saw that I was serious he told me to consider an abortion.
I refused, he stopped calling,texting and visiting me, and whenever I called he never picked up the phone.
I was afraid to tell my parents but I did, and they went to his home, talked to his parents and asked him if he was the one who was the father of my child and he agreed.
We have never talked to each other since the visit of my parents, I was hoping that we might talk after he agreed the child was his. I always wished that we would be better parents but I was lying to myself, I wonder how our baby is going to grow up with separated parents. I hope that one day I will accept that we were never meant to be.

Editor's Comment

It is sad that you have not been able to talk together even if you are no longer going out with each other. I wonder if his family will want to be a part of their grandchild's life? Once the baby is born perhaps you will be able to work out if your ex-boyfriend is going to have any involvement. It will be sad if he completely turns his back on you both.find a centre for pregnancy support in your area.
