Ooh, this is a bit tricky. On one hand, she is first and foremost your responsibility. On the other hand, putting her in the hands of people who may abuse her --- how do you even begin to choose the right parents to adopt her? But, then there is the relationship in the future. In the future, when she IS 10-12, she may want you in her life, or she may not know what to do with you in her life. Is there a close relative who can have her for your college years? Do you already have a couple in mind? It might help to start asking around at your local church about people wanting to adopt, and getting to know them and interview them first. Remember - your child in their house will be growing up with their way of thinking and their point of view! As for your moving to a new place, she could also need to learn how to live in a new place, too. You might consider a "nanny" situation. Let me explain. In the old days, old women who no longer could do physical labor were the ones who looked after the children while the people who did physical labor went out into the fields - usually a n old grandmother who became the "nanny". That is really the source of that. In today's society we really frown upon domestic servitude and people who have "servants", but up to even 50 years ago it was still acceptable for a young parent or couple with children to have an older woman housekeeper, such as an aunt or grandmother who is widowed and has no children of their own or is needing care to watch for possible medical problems, where that woman has a place to live and earns her stay by watching and caring for the babies and doing housekeeping while the wage-earner earns the money. We have turned this situation into a shameful thing, but, you have to remember that "Superwoman" is not in your name or job description. You don't HAVE to "Do it all" and you don't HAVE to "Do it all by yourself". A fair trade is still an acceptable fair trade. Right now I know of about 7 elderly widows in my church group who are lonely and bored since their husbands have died. We are a rural community far from the nearest town and the ladies do not go anywhere or do anything. They have all the time in the world but no place to go and nothing to do now that their husbands are gone. These women need something to make them needed again. I also know of homeless women who have nowhere to go and nothing to do in their lives. I know of situations where this is working, such as my husband's mother who is helping still care for her adult daughters and her adult daughter's children while her daughters are working at jobs. I know of a couple of sisters living together where one sister works for the money and the other sister, widowed from her husband being killed in a car accident, takes care of the kids and the house at home. I also know of some friends of mine -- good, smart intelligent, educated people who are on a long waiting list to adopt. So I say again, go to your local church and start asking around Today IS Sunday!.You may meet some people that you really believe will care for your daughter, or, you may meet a person who needs a place to go and you trust with your daughter while you go to school and work. The answer, I guess, really starts with you actually going out and meeting and interviewing people, so that the answer becomes clearer to you when you put thought into action. When you have talked with a few people closer to home, the answer may present itself. But i really suggest starting with a local church group and talking to people there. I wish you luck and I wish you wisdom in your ultimate choice.
