That is the day my baby is due with her baby. about 10 days after she graduates from high school.
She will turn 18 the first week in November. My heart is a bit sad because the dreams I had for her are no where to be found now. Grief is such a hard emotion to put into words.
She and Bill, her boyfriend have been dating for nine months now. They discussed the pregnancy and had made up their mind about what they wanted to do. Abortion was never an option. Chelsea said seeing what I have gone through with the adoption of Josh was enough to make her not want to give the baby up for adoption, so that leaves them having raising the baby. They are both committed to the relationship and the raising of the baby at this time. I truly hope the situation stays that way for the baby's sake.
Chelsea and Bill both told Wes and I together. That was a good lst step. Needless to say, if you know me, I didn't mince words to well. I feel like I was pretty direct and clearly stating my thoughts so that I was understood. Wes on the other hand, was so much more like the Lord, or how I perceive the Lord to be. He was firm with his words but not nearly as curt as I was.
I am not sure what all is ahead of us with this pregnancy, but we are going to support her and Bill. We are proud of them for choosing life! We are proud of them for making a right decision when a wrong decision would have been so much easier.
So this is a new path I have not taken before, there will be lessons to learn and lots of love to give and a new life to celebrate!
