Dear One tough muther,
My Grandson was married and had a child, but then ended up getting divorced. During the divorce my Grandsons ex met someone and got pregnant. Well My Grandson and his ex wife ended up working it out over time and getting back together and the baby that was brought into the marriage from another man is treated the same as my other grand baby and my grandson loves him as his own. The real father of the child wants nothing to do with him. And that is really ok with us because like I said my grandson is there and he is his daddy. Some have said that My Granddaughter in law should fight for help with my grand baby from the real father. But all I keep seeing is drama and problems and stress with that, that our sweet little boy doesnt need. Are we doing the right thing with this situation?
I am in awe of you, of course you are doing the most wonderful thing ever, giving that baby love and a family.
We have to remember that children DO NOT ask to be born and once we bring them in to the world we must act responsible and give them every chance we can to survive. As far as fighting for support I agree wholeheartedly with you, why create the drama. However, I strongly urge the Mother and your Grandson to fight to have your grandson adopt the child. This way there will NEVER be any chance of things falling a part for the sweet baby boy, later in life and he will truly be your grandson’s child.
Grandma, you and I both know any Joe Blow can make a baby, but it takes a real man to be a father.
You sound like a wonderful family and that sweet boy is very blessed to have you all.
Good Luck & HUGE Muther Hugs,
One Tough Muther
