Is My Baby’s Daddy Crazy?

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on May 1, 2013

Q I met my boyfriend at a party six months ago. At first he seemed really nice and cute. Once he found out I was pregnant, he changed. I am really kind of scared! He doesn’t seem like the same guy I fell in love with.

He has pushed me, yelled at me and now I think he is sleeping with someone else. He tells me that I am just being paranoid. The closer I get to have this baby, the more nervous I feel. I am so glad we didn't move in together… Lately I have been thinking about giving the baby up for adoption and starting a new life far away from here.
