Teen Dad. My Girlfriend Needs Support.

Hey girls my names Richard. I'm 19 and I have a 18 year old girlfriend Melissa.
She's going through a really hard time right now, we have a 2 year old daughter Abby-Jaye and Mel had a one night stand last year and got pregnant again I forgave her about the one night stand because I love her and she decided she didn't want the baby nor did she want to have an abortion, so her mother's friend can't have children so she decided she would give them the chance of being parents. They now bring up her/their son Ryley. She's having a really hard time leaving the house, bonding with Abby and even speaking to me.
She see's Ryley in the street with his parents and breaks down crying.. I have no idea what to do.. she wont speak to her parents, her adoption counselor, she wont go to the doctors, she wont do nothing because of this Abby has spend the last 5 days at her grans because I have to work and Mel refuses to get out of bed.. I really don't know what to do.. I love her so much and want her to be happy and learn that Ryley has a great life with his new parents, we have Abby..

Please. Help!:(

It's gotta be hard on her to see the baby with the other parents, my friend gave her baby girl up for adoption in May of this year and they live in California, and it's still very hard on her. Try to talk to her, get her to do something like a date or a scrapbook, I know it helped my friend alot.

Honestly, I wish I could offer better advice...but living in the same town as the child she gave up for adoption might be too painful. You might want to consider relocating, not far away but far away enough that it isn't so painful and in her face all the time

Right, but I don't think anyone really knows how hard adoption is going to be until they go through it. Plus didn't you say she's pregnant now? The hormones could be overwhelming her
