They have that here they must have it there too. I just don't know what it is called. You know what my sis said?? I cant force her to undergo surgery like that!
What?? She has her head in the sand! I can't believe she won't even talk to her daughter about that option! She deserves to be a grandma at 35! Ok, I am sorry that my niece has to go through this but..... I really think it is for the better her bf is uneducated has had 5-6 jobs in the past year and she is still in highschool! I just don't understand them.
Enough of my family drama! I hope that everyone has a great day!!
Jezzy, depending on your relationship with your sister, you may want to revisit this issue. My sister had a baby right after she turned 15 and my now 6 1/2 yo nephew is being raised by my mom (and has been since he was about 2 weeks old). My sister lives in the same house, but takes no responsibility for her son's upbringing. My nephew has very little comprehension of what "mom" means; he knows "grandma" as mom. Your sister is right, she can not make those kinds of decisions for her daughter, but she may be the one who pays the price for her daughter's decisions if your niece choses not to use protection.
I don't know how responsible your niece is in other areas of her life, but at that young an age, she wouldn't be doing it by herself, raising a child, yk? Maybe she would be able to handle the responsibilities of motherhood, but most young girls can not. I think that is something that your sister and her daughter might discuss together. Your sister can discuss her options and let her know what she can make of her life if she waits to have children, discussing the best ways to protect her from having children too early, etc. Then, ideally, your niece will make the best decision for a girl her age.
I am sorry for her loss though. I'm sure that she is hurting and missing the baby that could have been. That was just my 2 cents . . . well, a little more than 2 cents.
