    Kinship adoption is a thing. If she feels she can't raise a child at this point in her life and her stepfather is willing to take on the responsibility, that's between them.

    No I8 yr old has the means for raising

    her kids so an older stepfather whom she

    trusts w/ this kid is a much better option.

    Chances are that the babies father is not going to be in the picture so it would just be the single mother struggling. Rather than aborting the child, praise to god, she is allowing it to live but under her father's name. That way, she can go back to before she had her kid and it won't affect her future negatively. The baby can also be taken care of by an adult that has more to offer the child. It's a win win for everyone.

    Because she's probably a drug abuser. No other reason than that.
