I havent posted much but have been lurking for a long time. I am in real need of some help right now. I am a single mom with a 21 year old adopted daughter (adopted at age 11). She has been with me for 10 years and has always been extremely immature for her age. This is due to her past and her diagnosis. She has her good moments but on most days her maturity level is that of a young teenager. She is impulsive, explosive and doesnt think too much about consequences. She also talks (even when things are going well for her) in a very childish manner. I love her with all my heart but she is more complicated than anyone I have ever met. She has been on birth control for a few years but last week we found out that she is pregnant (due at the end of April). After the initial shock wore off for both of us she told me that under no uncertain terms will anyone take this baby from her. She was taken away from her family (due to abuse and neglect) and said she will not reject this baby. Talking to her about placing the baby in a stable loving home is getting me no where and I know this is a decision I cant make for her. She is currently back home with me and has never been able to hold a job. I lost her adoption assistance when she turned 21 and she was rejected for disability. Im working 2 jobs right now to pay bills. She made an attempt at a vocational college medical assistant program but didnt do the work, kept skipping class and was dismissed. She just refuses to do anything that requires some work. I have had people ask me if she was ever given an MR label because of her behavior but no, there are no learning disabilities. I do believe in miracles and maybe this might cause her to grow up but I dont have a guarantee on that. I know that today, any baby left in her care would be in danger because she doesnt have the mentality to know what to do. I hope she can learn but like I said there is no guarantee. I know there are a lot of babies born to unwed mothers, but she is so unstable right now. Any suggestions I make about anything, even taking care of herself, are met with a very defensive attitude. She has been in some legal trouble over the past couple of years and her cases were recently turned over to a Mental Health Court. She has a lot of stuff to clean up. Nothing major, it just started adding up for her after she chose to not show up for a court date back in March. (She just doesnt think!) Im just asking for some prayers and support that I will handle things the right way without driving a wedge between us. My main concern of course is for the baby and for my daughters health. I just dont know what to do!
