  • My Daughter is having her first child.I feel proud of her; however she didn't tell for four months into the pregnancy . She didn't know until she went in for a checkup. She was afraid I was going to be mad at her, and that she had let me down. I lost my wife two years ago , and they were real close so she felt like she had no one to connect with , but her friends. My daughter kept up her appointments with her doctor, and she would wear these baggy sweats around the house. she would buy things and leave them over her friends house. When she finally told me through tear's ; I was surprised then overjoyed that she was alright and that the baby is too. I told her during times like this families come together and support each other , and that you can tell me anything. The reason that i am writing this is to remind me and anyone else that the relationship between child and parent isn't what I think, it's what their perception is of what they think.
