So… in order to push Hook as the nanny/”father figure” they had to:
a) kill the kid’s actual dad
b) have his mother, the one that raised him, forgotten by him
c) completely push his grandparents out of the picture (remember how Charming was his “father figure” teaching Henry how to sword-fight?), because obviously is more probable for Henry to not question why to hang around a stranger with a hook, rather than a lovely couple.
Maybe it’s just me, but I think that if you have to destroy pretty much what you’ve been building for almost 3 seasons in order to push something else, then maybe it’s not worth it? Maybe it’s just wrong? Maybe it’s just too much forced?

The thing is, Regina could’ve just gave Emma the memories of Henry and her being safe. Sorta like the curse, the storybrooke residents just popped up there and they have no recollection of how those memories formed; they’re just there. When Graham began to remember and asked Mary Margaret how they met, she drifted off with ‘…I don’t know.’ because that’s how the curse worked. Regina could’ve did that to Emma and Henry. Just have the knowledge that she’s his mom and he her son, them safe from Pan, and that’s it.
Regina implanted memories. Tangible memories of growing up with him. All the firsts that Emma always wanted. His first walk, his first steps, a life full of love.
And Regina did it for nothing. Nothing in return. Just for Henry and Emma to be loved by each other. She gave Emma a gift, but also Henry. A gift of love without any complications. Without any questioning if his mother loved him. No monsters besides the normal imaginary ones under his bed as a child. Free of the memories of eating cursed turnovers, of nearly dying countless times, of being kidnapped. Just happiness.

"she was special and unique because unlike other girls she read a book and drank a tea and didnt talk about a clothes"
If a 16 year old would want to adopt a child no one would give it to her because she isn’t 21 yet or not an adult or maybe too irresponsible.
So if a 16 year old is so irresponsible and not an adult yet so she wouldn’t even be allowed to adopt a child, then why would the government force her to get that child even though she might not want it?
Let’s talk about how logical the bill against abortion is now
