I sent you a message a few weeks ago about my exciting pregnancy news! Last night at thanksgiving dinner, we told our families! I have never seen my dad cry before… It was so touching to be surrounded by so much love, support and pure excitement! I am so thankful for our family and my little peanut growing inside me! This is the best feeling in the world, I am literally glowing! YAY! :D!

The scene you describe is how the news of all of our arrivals should be received. The announcement of a newly conceived human being should bring enormous joy, feelings of overwhelming love, and amazement at the miracle of life. And all of these feelings should be independent of the circumstances behind that person’s conception. Someday, we will mature enough as a species to realize this.

And by the way, I can feel your glow shining through your words. I am so happy for you and for the fact that your child is loved and protected while awaiting his or her birth.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful news and keep us posted as your child continues to live and grow within you. All the best!
