John was the father of the baby. He is seventeen years old and is the typical teenager. He enjoys driving around, listening to music, and hanging out with his friends. He started having sex with Kim (the mom) four months into the relationship. They did it about once a week and used no protection. He thinks she will be OK but does not want to marry her. He is worried if he leaves Kim, he will be chased after for child support money. He wants to have the baby adopted before the birth that way he wont change his mind after he sees his kid. John has a serious problem. He is now a father and does not know what to do. He thinks you can just get rid of the baby through adoption and it will all be over. He is wrong. If I were in his position, I would be worried and embarrassed. I would think that my life was over. No more high school, no more friends, no more life. Just the baby and a job. I would fee responsible to take care of Kim and the baby.
Kim is a fifteen-year-old sophomore. People say she is a little grown up for her age but still is a typical teen. She suggests that they talk to a social worker. At first they both like the idea of an adoption. She is a little concerned that the baby will not get good parents if it is adopted. She believes the baby will only need to be taken care of for one or two years then it will be able to do things with out it parents help. Kim is even more clueless than John. The fact that she thinks it only needs one or two years of being taken care of is a sign to me. She doesn’t realize that its her responsibility more that Johns. She doesn’t know that she is going to need lots of time and money for the baby. If I were in Kim’s shoes, I would be extremely worried. I am only fifteen and I am about to have a baby. If I adopt it, I would feel bad for the rest of my life. If I keep it, I am going to be stuck at home taking care if it. I won’t get a collage education, and I cant marry john, because he does not want to. John will most likely ditch me and I will be stuck taking care if it myself. Plus, my mom is real upset with me because of this whole thing.
John’s parents are extremely surprised about what John did. They think it is “unfortunate” and that both of their lives are now ruined. John’s dad thinks its sex education’s fault. He says that they got it to early and got bad ideas in their head. His dad also thinks John needs to get a better job to support his baby. They aren’t giving John the light of day. They are giving him no support. His dad is real disappointed and treating his son like he did something illegal. His dad knows nothing about John’s problems. If I were John’s parents, I would know that there was not much we can do about it. It Kim’s choice about what happens to the baby and its Johns choice weather he wants to help take care of the baby. We can tell him the right thing to do, but really we are just sitting back and watching.
Kim’s mom did not take the pregnancy well. She does not like john, but want him to mary Kim because of the child. She thinks Kim “turned out bad because of broken trust. She holds John responsible because “Kim is just a baby.” She says, “Kim will think its like playing with dolls.” Kim’s mom is real stupid about the whole thing. She does not realize that Kim was at fault as well as John was. However, she does understand the fact that her daughter having a baby is a huge concern. If I were Kim’s mom, I would be real disappointed. I would suggest to her that she put the baby up for adoption right away. At
