Life isn't fair, sometimes
Amy is Asked today:
My youngest sister is a junior in college and is pregnant. Although she is on friendly terms with the baby’s father, she is not in a relationship with him nor does she wish to have one in the future. My sister and the baby’s father decided to give their child up for adoption and quickly found a couple who was interested. I am having trouble accepting my sister’s decision. I understand that being 21 and finding yourself pregnant is probably not ideal, but our parents are well-off. None of us has the burden of student loans, and in a year my sister will graduate from college.Amy says, among other things
I think she is being a bit entitled. After all, she got herself into this mess. It doesn’t seem fair that she just gets to put the child up for adoption and resume her life.How can I impress to her that she can -- and should -- take more responsibility for her actions?
I assume you have already considered adopting the child yourself. This might be a positive solution.Wahahahahahahhaaaaa....
Sheesh. Of course not. All she's interested in is making sure her sister doesn't get away with it.
Sure, she dresses it up with "as a mother myself" but it comes down to "she is being a bit entitled," "it doesn't seem fair," and "she should take responsibility".
Honey, it takes more than a lack of debt (parents might not be so pleased, btw) to make a good home for a child.
