Confused and don't know what to do. They give me the choice to give
guardianship of my child to someone I know or loose her for good. I am torn in
two. They say that they will take her sooner or later if I do not do this now. Can I
really risk that? I can't think straight right about now. They want a decision right
now but how can I just say yes and not feel like a failure. The world seems to turn
around me, yet I can't feel a thing. I am numb and do not know what is going on
around me. This is hard. They want me to just give her up without a fight and I
don't know if I could do that. They mentioned Aaliyah today and how I couldn't take
care of her. For pity’s sake I am only 17. My heart is torn in two and though I know
it is for the better it’s a hard decision to make. They say I can get her back when I
have my feet on the ground but am it really true? I never thought that I would be
caught in such a situation, wow this is for real. I am so confused.
