I had a baby when i was only 13 and i haven't seen her since she was 6 months old

I had a baby when I was only 13 and I haven't seen her since she was 6 months old. I'm now 17 and she's 4. My mum now wants her to come and live with us but I'm not sure how I'll cope. I have a loving boyfriend and another baby on the way. I'm really stuck on whether I should accept that my mum will do this what ever I say or tell her how I really feel? Editor's note: Thank you for writing in...You don't say much about the arrangement you had with your mother, whether it was a legal arrangement or purely informal, or whether the Social Services were involved, but this is a situation where you need specialist help to take into consideration all the issues involved, especially the welfare of your daughter which is paramount. I strongly recommend you visit your nearest centre to find the emotional support you need for this, as well as to discuss the situation generally regarding the options open to you.
