I hope this is an unusual situation...We caught word that a local 12 year old girl in our town is pregnant. My mother in law knows someone in the little girl's family. Mother to the 12 yo says they are not keeping the baby, but the 12 yo says she is keeping the baby...our name has been thrown out there to the 12 yo's mother as looking to adopt.
I'm having a hard time coming upon any information that would explain the 12 yo's rights as the baby's mother...I have a friend that works for children's services who is also going to check into the rights issue for me, but I thought I would ask on here as well in case anyone else has either heard or known of any such similar situation.
From what I understand this was a one night stand sort of thing and that the boy's family has changed their number and everything in order to avoid contact with the 12 yo girl and her family.
My husband and I have known from the time we met that both of us were open to adoption, but this has been the first real possible senerio for us, as we have not started with an adoption agency as of yet. So, word of mouth is where we are starting for now... I'm learning a lot reading through these forums and will continue to do so. Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions and information if anyone has any!
