Lori sits down with SuChin Pak to discuss the issues that came up in Episode 5 and what's happened since.
SHe did the most unselfish thing. Thinking of giving the child a stable 2 parent home. How would they have paid to take care of the baby go on welfare????????? It should not be the grandparents role to raise the child and by raise I mean pay for everything. She did the most responsible grown up thing. Kids having kids ......not good
I absolutely hate her freaking parents. It should be her choice and NO ONE elses.
A parent cannot "make" another parent give THEIR child up. Her parents offered advice. She didn't want to face reality. Just the same way, she cannot MAKE her parents support her and HER child. She unrealistically EXPECTED her parents to provide for both her and her child. We don't know their financial situation--and her parents CANNOT be expected to raise, house or financially provide for a child that is not theirs. We often forget that our parents do not OWE us anything.
i agree 100%
Why didn't the adoption agency step in and say something about how Lori's parents were pressuring her? That seems totally irresponsible.
adoption is better then abortion. im against abortion but there is reasons for abortions that im not against. say like a female was **** and she got pregnant then i think thats when an abortion is ok.
I know the emotions lori went there when she gave aiden up. i have 2 girls and i gave them both up for adoption. the wierdest thing is mine and lori's last name is so close. hers is Wickelhaus and mine is Wiebelhaus.
I completely agree. I just did not understand the mother's way of thinking.
This is really sad to watch. I'm catholic and I would never believe how pushy this mom is to tell her adoptive child to give up her child. It seems like the mom since day one already had made her decision for her to give up the baby for adoption. At the end she had no choice because not once did her mom offer her her support only adoption it's not like they couldn't have helped her I mean look at where they live. I don't understand why she kept pushing for adoption so much it obviously didn't hurt her mom that much because after all she was adopted. Her mom should have let her daughter make the decision and not be so pushy and be supportive she was not capable of not being a mother if they would have supported her. They just didn't want to help her financially and it wasn't like they where poor. It almost seemed the mom would make her feel like crap so she would lean towards adoption and the mom would close the door on her if she decided to keep the baby.
i wish there were laws against parents makin thm give there bby up whn thy dnt want 2 .........mayb a home 4 teen moms who dnt hav the support............
I cry my eyes out every time I watch this episode. It's so hard cause you can look at her and tell how bad she wanted to keep her son.
It also takes a REAL mother to do the selfless thing and give the child to a home that can take care of it. I understand that Lori didn't want to give up the baby but I'm most likely giving my baby up for adoption because I know I can't raise it. And there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with that.
this episode just kills me, that woman so called mother is a witch, the way she is acting is soooo weird, why force someone to adopt her baby??why?? poor lori didnt have any support she felt trapped,she didnt know whta to do...her parents are just soooooooooo wrong...I hate them, i hope one day lori make them pay for what they did...I've never seen omething like this its sooo hard to watch...
ok im sorry but i gotta tell the parents that being in high school and underage does NOT mean she is incapable of raising a child. Her parents ****** me off so bad as i watched the show. I got pregnant at 17 with my first child, and was pregnant all through my senior year. i did wat i needed to do for my child and for school. I graduated from high school only a month after my first son was born, but i made sure i walked that stage. I am the first person in my family to graduate high school. Being a teen mother does NOT make u a statstic. Being a good parent is in ur mind set, not about ur age. i understand she gave her baby up for adoption and that may have been the best choice for her and the child, but just imagine what the baby will say when it gets older and looks for her to get answers to his past and why he acts/looks/feels the way he does. also to the mother: im sick of u...wat good does it to do look ur child in the face and say to her that u dont want nothing to do with the whole thing when being young and pregnant is the most scared time in a young womans life. i know i could never have done both my pregnancies (both within a year...they are 364 days apart) wthout my mother there with me. and yea i totally agree that she was forced to give her baby up...man i just want to scream at the tv rite now as i watch this episode...its bulls***. my mother never made me feel so bad bout my children. yea sure she wasnt happy that i was pregnant but she knew it was MY decision as to wat i did with my life and my childs life. shame on you parents for making her feel as though she had to give him up. at one point the mother actually says "i dont think it would be a good idea to bring that child into this house" (or there along the lines) urrrrgggg...i want these ppls address please. someone needs to teach them a lesson. i wish the adoption agency had told them they werent able to raise lori bc they werent the best candidates to raise her. they suck so bad, and thats the pg of wat i want to say
I hated this episode Like many others have said that Lori's parents pushed way to hard to push her to give the baby up. I believe that they should have let her make the decision on her own, they were very selfish and didn't think about her feeling and thew way that giving up her baby would make her feel. I understand what her parents were saying about it being hard to take care of a bay at her age but the baby being her only blood relative they should have been more sensitive to that. such ass holes.
I total understand your point but I feel the way they handled it was wrong.
When I had my kids I payed rent to my parents, babysitting,and provide everything I needed. It was a less amount for rent because I was home. My point is You can support your kids choice and still make them be responsibly for that choice. I was glad to hear that everything worked out okay
I think lori's parents pushed to hard. I don't feel they had the right to call the baby's father the way they did to make a choice for her. I think that was the worst thing I ever saw. It was like they crushed her. My mom told me she would be a grandma and not a parent. My parents did it with love and support. They never made me think they would throw me out. I do believe they love lori, but I disagree in the way they handled it. I think if lori didn't find that family being so willing to have such an open adoption, she would regret her choice.
I think her parents should say sorry for how they treated her because Any discussion other then adoption was treated like it was so wrong. I feel Lori was very alone through this she didn't have support from the baby's father or her parents. I think thats why it hurts her so much to watch the show. God bless Lori
i feel that lori parents shouldnt of had any say so on what lori did and i do believe that they are some selfish people and was just mad becase they couldnt birth
I hoped that someone would come through for Lori during the whole episode. None ever did. I feel so sorry for her. Her parents forced her into a decision she did not want to make. I think they are the most selfish parents I have ever seen. I hope Lori's parents friends see this and shun them. Maybe they were not ment to be parents.
lori mom made me suckin ****** sick i think the woman was ashamed that lori was pregnant ...wut a *****
