I am in a particularly difficult situation. I already have a 2yr old to the worst type of deadbeat dad. Now I have gotten pregnant to an ex who has a criminal history (not extensive). He will not be a deadbeat, however, we are not in a defined relationship...which will make me a single parent twice around. Everyone around me is telling me that I was doing well with just one child and to not ruin my life...and that i should 'want more' and should choose abortion. I feel very foolish and embarrassed, however, i feel compelled by my heart and can not abort. Even though i will be struggling, I can still support a life with 2 kids. I know I am mentally strained (mostly hormone driven) out of fear of the unknown. Can anyone offer another viewpoint or a brighter side than what everyone is saying?
