  • 17 and Pregnant

    I’m 17 and pregnant and in foster care. If I have my baby while being a runaway will they take it from me even though I’m in a safe environment and have everything set for the baby? I’m staying with a lady who is a caretaker for the state but nobody knows I’m here

    Hello There,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to provide support. It sounds like you are going through an overwhelming time and we want you to know that you are not alone.
    We are not legal experts but most likely being a runaway would not affect you being able to keep your baby or not. Also the hospital where you deliver may have a social worker you can talk to that would be able to answer your questions. We are glad that you are in a safe place.

    We are here for you 24/7 we can help with resources, exploring options and providing support to you. We can be reached by chat or by calling 1800-RUNAWAY (1800-786-2929. We 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.
