is there really no escape, no escape from time of any kind?

What would you do if you were raped and fell pregnant? You're morally opposed to abortions and would flat out refuse to have one. You don't want your child to grow up not knowing it's mother, because even though you have been raped its still your child. You can't keep the child because every time you look at them you'll see bits of the person who raped you.

What do you do with a child that you can't keep, but cannot give away...?

i know this is hypothetical, but i would say just love it in its own right. learn to see the child as a gift and a soul, a beautiful person, not the product of someones hideousness. not the product of your pain...

but it is the product of your pain. I know that's what i'd intend to do... to see the child as it's own person and as a seperate being to those memories and that suffering but... i dont know how well i'd go seperating the two in my mind...

I'd put it up for adoption. The child wouldn't know me but at least it would go to a family that loves, needs and wants it, and won't see pain and horror in it's eyes. Preferably an open adoption, so the child could find me and know who I was, but it would just be easier on all parties for it to grow up with a stable family.
