I had a baby when i was only 13 and i haven't seen her since she was 6 months oldBy anonymous on 28/01/2008
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?

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.
