See my plea to save this child’s life.
Why do you prefer killing your child over placing them for adoption? I know you’ve been provided links to the resources you need. Trust me, they will get you through your difficulties. Violence against your child is not the answer. Violence is never the answer. If you wouldn’t kill one of your post-born children to solve a problem, you shouldn’t kill your preborn child to solve a problem. You’re stronger than you believe and they’re worth the struggle.
You know, I was just gonna delete this and move on but after hearing over and over and over again today by more than one person (all of who meant it as a compliment and encouragement) and getting more than a few anons like this, I have to say I am not stronger than I think. I am exactly as strong as I think. I know exactly, better than anyone else, what I am capable of and what I am not capable of. You should have seen me 30 minutes ago, crying and shaking, at work, because I’ve had less than 4 hours of sleep in the last 24 hours, I have another 8 hours left to go before I can get home and get some sleep, my foot is killing me and throbbing with every step, and I am ready to drop. And Mondays aren’t even my long days. Another 8 months of this crap WILL kill me or hospitalize me. There is no ifs, ands, or buts about it. You cannot carry a healthy pregnancy and go through delivery and go right back to work in a week, which is all the vacation I’ll have at that point in time because we can only take one week at a time. You can’t have a healthy pregnancy when every week, you’re up for 30-34 hours straight because no one else can handle my already living children who need me to be there so I don’t have another house fire. As of right now, I am so freaking done with this thing draining the life out of me. I’m tired and in pain and there is no one in my life who doesn’t need me constantly. All I need is a solid 8 hours of sleep for a week but that’s never gonna happen. I’m constantly getting sick, I’m type 1 too and you should see my blood sugar readings the last two weeks because holy shit…..I’m all over the place. So, anon who thinks they know my life and my abilities better than anyone, I have one thing to say to you: FUCK. OFF.
I know life can be hard, but you must admit that if someone came up to you right now and put a gun to your head, you would plead for your life. You know why? Because life is beautiful, despite all of its challenges. Please don’t kill your child. I will personally adopt your baby and I will love them unconditionally and I will let them know what a hero you were for making the sacrifice to love and protect them during their most vulnerable stage of life.
