Robin,
You should have a talk with your boyfriend and see what his true feelings are. He can't just say, "i dont know", he has word in this too, he's going to be the father of this baby, so really talk to him about that. Personally I have to say that adoption is the best choice you should choose for your age. Alot of girls your age want to keep their babies when they find out that they're pregnant but in reality, girls our age in our generation aren't suppose to be mothers yet. we're still developing and learing how to be an adult and someday mother. So if you really want your baby to have the best life they can, adoption would be your best chance. You can have an open adoption where you get to see your child as they grow up. Visit LifetimeAdoption.com, they are a great adoption center that can really help you. Feel free to email me back with further questions. Good Luck hun!
