Okay, it's so much easier for me to say these things because it's not me, but here we go.....

You cannot worry about what other people think.

You cannot change other people's opinions. They have to be willing to change.

If they choose to view this as a disappointment, then that is they're bad choice and they will have to live with that for the rest of their lives.

I have experienced quite a bit of family drama, including having my father decide to show almost zero interest in me and my daughter. It makes me incredibly sad to know that he has written us off but I refuse -- I absolutely refuse -- to beg someone to love me or my child. Yes, it is our loss too, but he has made this decision and he has to live with it.

I hope that your family comes around and realizes that while the timing isn't perfect, this baby is a true blessing and that they love him/her unconditionally. Give them time to adjust to the news and hopefully you'll see that they really do care.
Thank you JAIDYNSMUM for my adorable new siggy!
