My 18 year old niece is pregnant and about to become a SM! Advice?
My 18 year old niece, a freshman in college recently started dating a 20 year old boy who has a 1 1/2 year old baby from a previous girlfriend. (so why didn't he figure out how to prevent baby #2?). Soon after they started dating my niece became pregnant; they are getting married and the baby is due at the end of the year. The boy works and my brother and sister-in-law have purchased a home for them to live in so my niece will be able to continue her education. I think my brother is doing everything he can to insure the best future possible for his daughter and grandchild, but this has been a huge shock to our family. Do any of you ladies have any similiar experiences like this in your family? How did your situations turn out? Is there anything else as an aunt that I should do for my niece? I am giving her a baby shower and have tried to be supportive and loving, but I don't know of anything else to do. I worry because my niece will be living 4 hours away from home and will only have the boy's family to help her (and none of us have met them or know anything about them).
