Article: Unforeseen Joy
Lucas was a planned baby, but many are not!!! Abigail sure wasn't!!! But like any parent, David embraced Abby as best he could. And a little while after she was born, he was completely in love with her and so over joyed. An unplanned baby can be hard to accept, but they are still a blessing!! I had to accept Abby too! David and I have been together 3 years and she's a little over 2 years old, and she's my step baby; you do the math. It's rough, but I believe babies, no matter how they get here, are a blessing. :)
This article has some tips on how to accept your new little bundle of unplanned joy. :)
Like you, I believe that all babies are a reward from heaven, a true blessing and should be treated as such. While Erik doesn't refer to this little girl as his daughter because he claims he is only a sperm donor, I am saddened by his reaction. I had to embrace the fact that she is his daughter whether she was made out of love or not. She is a product of God's love and God's creation.
