After Lisas comment on adoption and Tracis comment on judging someone...I thought I would elaborate a little more on why so many think the way they do about Sherry being pregnant. I want to make it clear that it doesnt really matter what other people think, it is her life and she can do whatever she wants. It is not up to others to decide what is best for her. She is a wonderful, giving big hearted person and I just want her to be happy.
With that said...when she was 19 she had Cory...she was single and had no money.
She got pregnant before Cory was a twinkle in her eye...and went to term, gave the baby up for adoption for a better future.
There was a couple of abortions after Cory...
Then came Kelsey.
Last year she had a miscarriage.
Now there is this baby on the way.
Her boyfriend Kelly does not make it a habit of keeping a job for very long. She only works part time. They live in a run down old house with bad credit and no way out. Their phone gets cut off a lot and they live precariously on the edge with little money.
With no secure future and almost fourty years old, that is just downright scary for anyone.
Every pregnancy she has had has been an accident. None were ever planned. I realize sometimes these things happen, but not over and over and over.
So I feel for her, and I will be there for her to listen and lend a shoulder to cry on and an ear to bend.
My days of helping her monetarily are over you see. Back when Cory was two they came to live with Ian and I in a little bity apartment we had. I gave her a job as a manager in training at Dominoes. I was a manager. I did everything I could, but she only wanted to party. It was a bad time and it was a long time ago...and we have put it behind us.
Some people cannot be helped. They have to do things the hard way, and you just have to hope they get by and make it.
So there is...as Paul Harvey says...The Rest of the Story
