    Take a deep breath...at least she's not 16! Everything has a way of working itself out. You'll just have to be making more cross-country trips to spoil it! Congrats (even if you don't want them)!!

    A true blessing and many mixed feelings, right? She will work it out. She isn't the first TOO YOUNG person to have a child and do just fine. Be happy for her, and happy for yourself! You're gonna be a grandma!!!

    My first biological grandchild came before any marriage plans either. It's not the end of the world...... a grandbaby is always a blessing.

    I know it is a sweet blessing just still trying to get over the shock...... and the funny part is if asked me a week ago if I wanted to be a grandma I would have told you yes, but actually hearing the words "Mom I'm Pregnant" was harder to hear than I thought. and she is my baby so that didn't help. I don't know if it would have come as quite a shock if it had been from my 2 other kids, My 2 step Daughters (15 & 13) they where having a blast calling DH and I grandma and grandpa last night. Wow talk about a lot of mixed emotions [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] , but I had to apologize to my mom last night for when I put her through this, I gave her her first grand child... So I will be glad when the shock wears off and then I can start making stuff for the baby.... [​IMG]

    I know how you're feeling. Even tho I couldn't wait to be a grandma either, when I found out I was taken aback too. Excited and worried all at the same time. [​IMG] Mine hadn't been in their relationship very long at all either. It has all been good tho. Just focus on that grandbaby.....the parents will have to work their own stuff out.

    I was 20 also, she AND you will be great!! Your daughter will just have to buckle down and be ready to take care of another life [​IMG] Believe me, I bet she is just as shocked and prob. more scared. No matter how angry, upset, disappointed, sad you are just be there for her.

    When I told my mom, she said that she would pay for the abortion [​IMG]

    I could have killed her, all I wanted was someone to say to me, Its going to be okay, I love you. [​IMG]

    That was almost 7 years ago and my mom keeps my daughter every friday night and has done so since she was 2 weeks old [​IMG]

    Everything will be okay!!! Tell her CONGRATS!

    And a Congrats to you also!! [​IMG]
