I(F45) just found out our son(M19) got into his dream college but he can’t proceed (? )

The son has gone through a lot recently and my husband and I might really love some suggestions on which to do. My son has a 6 month old infant with his ex-girlfriend(17). She obtained kicked out because she was pregnant so she moved in with him. Which was until she decided to depart and move back home. The girl left us a note saying that she was sorry and haven' t gotten a hold of her since. Our son has been working 2 jobs and it' ersus taken a rough toll on him. My husband and I watch the baby sometimes and you will find days when he comes back home to pick up the baby and he' s completely drained.

I was cleaning and I found an email in one of the drawers. I understood it was written by my child and I didn' t realize how bad things actually were. It detailed him getting into an amazing school(didn' capital t know he applied to college again) but he can' t go because he includes a baby. It made me cry like no other. The baby is suffering, plus it' s even worse that he' s doing it alone. When we found out that his girlfriend was pregnant, we told him that we were here, but don' t expect us to take over. But now, now I' mirielle torn. I just want your pet to be happy. Right now he has no degree, works 2 low paying jobs, and it is struggling a lot mentally plus physically. He just got accepted into one of the best educational institutions for STEM and has an opportunity to change his path right now, but he does have a child. I just really, really want to discuss it, even though he said he was not going in their note.

ETA- I would like to include that my husband and I are totally willing to take in our grandchild but it all comes down to whether or not our son will allow all of us to help. I love the each of them deeply and will certainly not deny help to my kid when he is clearly within distress.
