What do you do when you fall in love with a character that wasn’t intended to be the main character?

Hey guys!
I’m having a total dilemma here! So here’s what the book was SUPPOSED to be about:

A girl name Felicity whose parents, Layla and Charlie, both died from drug use. She went to a foster home and was abused by her foster dad, got pregnant at 17, started doing hardcore drugs and prostitution, kid got taken away, got pregnant again so got off drugs, life starts getting rough so gets back on drugs, and that kid gets taken away too. Then when everything comes to head, she finds God.

What it’s becoming:

Layla and Charlie fall in love, get married, and have a child. Charlie is an alcoholic which leads to their child dying, they go to counseling, he gets better, they have another child, Felicity, but then Charlie starts drinking again and it leads to drug use. Charlie dies and Layla gets into drugs so Felicity gets taken away, she continues drug use, prostitution, has another kid that gets taken away. When everything comes to head, she find God.

=( I’m so confused as to where I want  to go with it. Originally, this was loosely based off a friend, Felicity, but now, I’m really loving Layla’s character. What to do???

Has anyone been in this position? If so, what did you do? If not, what would you do?
May God Bless You All!
