    RE: 16 and pregnant on probation and a runaway

    Thanks for reaching out to us for help. It sounds like you are in a really difficult situation right now. It sounds like you violated probation when you ran away from your group home. Since you are pregnant, that puts you in a really tough situation. It sounds like you need medical attention. We are not legal experts, but we can try to answer some of your questions. However, it sounds like since you violated felony probation, you could potentially face legal consequences including losing custody of your child and even jail time, which might not go away even if you turned 18 without getting caught. Not going to the doctor could put your health or your baby’s health at serious risk. We are here to listen and support you in any way that we can. We can help you figure out what you want to do, and all our services are anonymous and confidential. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon, and wish you the best of luck.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
