In this week's after show, hosted by SuChin Pak, Ashley admits to having doubts about giving her daughter up for adoption, and talks about her plans for the future.
hey ashely u are a goodd mom cause u have school and taking care of a baby and being so young no so u are a very good mom
Ashley is good mom i would have done the same thing if i ever had a kid so young.
ashley u did the right thing...i look up to u for think bout her!!
I think under the circumstances she did what was right for her, I also cried watching her episode. I was also a teen mom, I had three kids by 21 years old. I know how scary it is to be young and pregnant. I personally could not do what Ashley did, but I would tell her she has made a decision for her child and she thought of what would be better for her child. That to me shows she is a great mom and for her to continue in her education so she can have a good life. Her baby will have a good life and that's what all mothers want for their children. I wish her good luck and to tell her if she does not feel supported, she needs to support herself.
i actually cried when watching her show, it was so sad, i could never give up my baby, however i do want to adopt when i am older wich is kind of a weird combination
the baby is beautiful but i believe that ashleys mom was supportive to a certain extent. She seemed as if she wanted the baby close when she knew her daughter had chosen adoption and when ashley decided to keep the baby she started acting more like "well do this and do that" instead of trying to help her through till she got the hang of how to do things. I feel like Ashely wish she could have her girl with her but have somebody help with it too. My sister s pregnant and i know she goes to college and works full time and i am going to help her with her baby when she needs it, or when i can because you never know what the future holds and i want to be part of the baby's life.
she is awesome
What a BEAUTIFUL baby! I think Ashleys mom was understanding and VERY supportive. She said she would support any decision she would make. She even told her she would watch the baby for Ashley so she could go out on the weekends occasionally!
I think she made a good decission.. she is young and from the beginning u could tell she didnt know much about taking care of a baby she couldnt even figure out what to do when the babys diaper leaked..im not trying to talk bad about her but i think she was a little under educated to have her... baby wise. Her mom was right to make her tske care of the baby i think she should have taught her a bit more about taking care of a child before she had her..but ohh well i guess.. and yes her mom has already had her children and has taken care of them its not her resposibility to take care of a child that isnt hers unless she wants to. if u open ur legs and get pregnant u better b able to deal with the consiquences..in this case this girl wasnt and she herself knew it.. im proud of her for what she did.. most ppls pride would get in the way and say that they could take care of the child and that the best place for that child is with them but this girl made a very adult decission and nobody should bash her for that.. at least her child will have a good life and everything she needs and ashley will b able to go to college somethng she wants to do to make her life better. I really liked this episode.
too sad that this girl's mother did not support her decision to keep the baby. her mother did not give her the support she obviously very much needed. poor girl.
the comment about the aunt dont make sense....at 16 your still in school full time and probaly planning college full time then work some part time min wage which would not be enough to support,you, a home ,and the baby at 25 at least your done with school ,probaly finish college and can get a good paying job that can afford a home, you and the babys needs.so how raising a baby at 25 harder than at 16?????
everyone keps saying if her family would of done this, if her family would of done that, if her mom was more supportive etc. etc.
the baby was not her family's responsibility. it was ASHLEY'S! if Ashley wouldn't of has sex, she wouldn'tof gotten pregnant. BUT, i love the fact how selfless ashlet was abd gave her baby up for adoption bc she knew that her aunt & uncle could give her so many more oppruntites than she can.
yes, i do think her mom did want to give the baby u for adoption but i think themom was really trying to do what was best for Ashley & the baby. If ashley would of kept the baby, she wouldn't be going to college and the baby wouldn't have nearly the benfitees she does now.
Her mom was just simply letting her know she has to raise the baby she is the one who gave birth and it seemed she wanted to put the responsibility on her mother... the decision was all hers....i do wonder how much did her mom educate her about sex and unprotected sex?
no her mom didnt have a say Ashley made that decision on her own when she laid down with the guy and got pregnant its not fair to put it on her mom.she was about to lay down the rules because it seemed ashley motherly instinct wasnt kicking in and expected her mom to carry the same responsiblities. so her mom was just making it clear that if she keeps the baby she has to raise it.
sadly ashley thought she was in love and let herself get pregnant should have took birth control or make him wear condom but maybe she didnt think it matter because her mom got pregnant young too and thought "oh my mom had me young she'll understand and help me raise it"thats were she made the mistake.her mom DID NOTwant her to get pregnant young because she went thru it and she STRUGGLED.its not fair to say her mother was cold.she just know that when she as a single mother chose to keep ashley it was a struggle and that she dont want her to go through the same thing...
her family did help they offered to adopt the baby so it didnt have to go with strangers and her mother was supportive.she stood by her through out her pregnancy when that was the boyfriend job to do,but her mom did not tell her to go out and get pregnant so it not fair that she has to take on the responsibility of raising the baby she has a job and also a little girl she needs to look after. she said it in the show she was done raising babys.if ashley would have kept the baby she was going to rely on her mother and i dont think thats fair to her mother.but i still aint going to write negative things about ashley she still did a wonderful thing and that is thinking that her daughter deserves better than a single mother and no clue to what she wants in life.
did you not hear she said she wanted a stable situation for her baby,not being passed to different people through out the day and her father was not going to be in her life,and she still feels she made the wrong choice.whether you keep your baby or give to adoption either way it is hard her being so young and yeah she probaly could have raised her by taking her money college tuition and used it on her baby but her decision was based on she couldnt do it alone and she wanted a stable home and 2 parents she wasnt going to be able to give her that. she wanted her mom to carry the responsibility also and thats not fair her mother did not tell her to get pregnant ..but still she being to hard on her self i think she gave her baby a better situation and thats what important ...
i agree, well said there should be more comments like yours..
