Then be sure you make the right decisions for this child by working together for an adoption plan. You’ll have less stress and guilt when you take responsibility and let your feelings be clear. You deserve to be listened to and to have a say.

Your roles and responsibilities are to do what’s best for this child. You might get some pushback from your parents or friends but this is when you need to think for yourself, man up and do what is right for the child.

Other guys have gone down this road and you can too. You also open up an opportunity to have a relationship with your birth child in the coming years through open adoption.
