          June 17, 2004

          Alexandra’s Decision: Adoption or Motherhood?

          Dr. Phil continues to work with Martin, Erin and their daughters Alexandra, 15, and Katherine, 12, as they struggle to decide whether pregnant Alexandra should keep her baby or place it for adoption.

          Follow this “Dr. Phil Family” series.

          The Family Reacts
          The entire family responds to Dr. Phil’s line of questioning with anger, denial, relief and surprise. They confront the effects that Alex’s pregnancy is having on all of them.


          Each family member opens up.

          A Trial Run
          Alexandra was thinking of giving her baby up for adoption — until she saw the fetus on a sonogram. To help her make the decision, Dr. Phil challenges Alex to care for an electronic baby doll.


          Alex gets an idea of what child rearing is like.
