No. even if you are under the AGE of 18 YOU are still the legal guardian to this child. You cannot be forced to give your child up, nor can anyone else make the decision for you, UNLESS you are mentally unstable or will have your child at risk. then the child CAN be taken. But I must say, if you ARE under 18, you have to think of the best interest of this child. can you financially take care of this child.(VERY VERY VERY expensive) Will this babys father be there? could you give this child everything it needed? If there were any types of health problems with this child could you pay medical expenses and emotionally handle it? You have to look at the whole aspect of the situation. and if you are unsure about any answers to the previous questions then it would not hurt to look into adoption. There are sooo many(married, stable) families out there that would love to have a child but couldnt. And if you are not ready for a child, you could give the greatest gift to a family... a child... But good luck, and i hope i have helped!

No. I am under 18 and am pregnant. I have decided to give my baby a better home through adoption. However, it is MY decision. You guardians cannot make you do it. YOU are the one who signs the adoption papers and has the right over your child. Also, in many states if you are under the age of 18, and you are pregnant and unmarried, you're considered the only legal parent of the child. The birthfather only has rights if he supports you and somehow contributes to the baby or you during your pregnancy.

Your guardian may not be able to make the call, but if you are unable to provide or care for the child or fail to properly care for your child or if you are in currently in legal trouble (especially violence or drugs) the child may be taken by CPS after he/she is born.
