encouraging words ?

I feel completely and utterly hopeless and empty besides this blessing in my tummy.... I'm 19, 12 weeks, and I have no one there except verbally or spiritually... I feel so alone in all of this and it kills me bc I want to offer the best life for my child as I can but I love it too much to give it up... am I selfish ? I mean, I can do all I can, work all I can, struggle just for this baby but for how long will I be able to do it ? I don't want to one day stop trying bc I'm tired or stressed . I just want to be happy and I want this baby to be happy . I just pray that a random loving kind rich lady or man takes me in ad their own and shows me and my baby what it's like to be loved and have a family...

Well, good luck.  That kid on the Internet who wanted to get adopted who was already a teenager did find someone, maybe you can get in with a church community and find some friends there.

You know, you are this baby's mom, right now, today, and you really do have what it takes to make your child feel loved and cared for. Money isn't necessary for love, although it's nice to have. I've met many people who didn't grow up with a lot of material possessions but they had a mom who sacrificed for them and loved them and they don't care about the other stuff. Your baby will be the same (AND who knows! Even the material side of things might look up any day!) You can do this! True love and sacrifice are what is all about. :-) (PS I don't mean in any way to look down on adoption of that's something you decide on in your particular circumstances, I just have no doubt in my mind that if you keep your baby, God will help you make it work. One of my favorite sayings is "you can't outdo God in generosity". Carrying this baby, caring for him/her, loving and sacrificing for him/her is generosity and even as crazy generous as we think we can ever be, God is MORE generous. He's got your back. :-)
