i wouldnt blame her mum for asking to give up for adoption.
not that she is hard hearted, perhaps she knows that her daughter is unable to raise this child.
in the end, her mum is the one who is gg to suffer n bear this responsibility.
im pretty sure she wont be able to raise the child up w/o the help of her mum.
it's very hard.
i've been there, done that, i know how it's like.
trust me, there was a point of time that i naively think i can do it w/o my parents.
IMO, if doreen really wants to keep this child, then she has to be very strong n determined, n GROW UP.
no more smoking, drinking, late nights out,clubbing n whatever she likes doing in the PAST.
responsibility doesnt stop at giving birth to the child n keeping him/her by their side.
might sound cruel to doreen, but the child's well being shld be in the top priority.
the child shldnt suffer from a mistake which the mum has made.
if she is ready to make all these sacrifices and face the music, i wish her all the best.
if she can't, then she shldnt be so selfish n think of only what she wants.
not fair to her? then who is being fair to her child n her mum?
