I am not a nanny but my sister is! She moved from Oregon to NYC to be a nanny two years ago. She is working for her third family. I think she is about to make a big mistake but I don't know anything about NYC. She got pregnant awhile back and wanted to have an abortion. I guess her employer knew that she went to the boyfriend for help and he would not help, so she asked them for an advance. Long story short, she is keeping the baby and the baby is to be adopted by the sister's (her employer's sister and brother in law. The sister lives three towns over from my sister's boss. My sister works for a male and female. The sister of the female she works for is adopting her unborn child. -OP) sister. The baby will be due in 7-8 weeks. My sister is still working the same hours and job and pay as she always was. AND they had her apply for medicaid so they are not even paying for prenatal care, the state is. She won't really talk to me because she thinks my opinions are too harsh. I told her she needs counseling. I told her people don't just give away babies. She says they offered to get her an attorney to represent her but she has already signed a "consent for adoption". I think these people are just shady and taking advantage of a girl's misfortune. And although they are continuing to "let" her work through the pregnancy, she has no guarantee about a job post pregnancy. She'snot thinking clearly. Why would the aunt want the birth money to still be in the picture? I want to help her but don't know how. I also feel like it's really up to me since our own mother struggles with addiction and hasn't ever been much of a support to us!
