Wow, I am so sorry you have run into some very difficult people. I feel really bad for this young lady and your son as it is tough enough to have a baby when you are young but with a family like this girls it really puts stress on everyone. I was 18 when I had my first bouncing baby boy.
I know this situation well and the one who gets hurt the most is the one judging their own child as they have no idea of what they are doing. My wonderful neice had a baby and was not married as well as she is white and the baby's father is African American. My brother-in-law refused to have anything to do with my neice, called her names and refused to admit that this child was his granddaughter. That was the day my sister made the decision to divorce him. My sister had put up with his prejudice and bad behavior for years but stuck by him even through affairs etc. but this was not something she would tolerate.
To make a long story short my great neice is now 17 and the sweetest, kindest and prettiest young lady in the state of ND. She has tons of family to love and cherish her.
By the way, my sister lived in a run down trailer home from the day she left her husband but she had her children and her grandchildren and she was happy. If anyone called her white trash they would have had to deal with me..............oh, I am bad !
No situation is ever lost if we can take away from it some lessons that will help us grow and become a better person. I can see you know the lesson in this case, Bill. Never become the bitter and judgemental person this lady is but, instead, lavish love and support on your "DIL" and your son. They will grow under your love.
You get the grand prize - a grandchild.
Joy, I am sorry to hear you Dad needs an angio but hey, I bet he could perform his own with his history. I will keep you all in my prayers.

OK, Denise and Sandy (Ladies of the Club), when is our first meeting ? It is time we unite and share our stories. What I miss from the past is having someone ask for my ID to prove I am 21. LOL When my granddaughter get carded I always offer to show my card but so far no takers. You two make me smile and I love to smile.
To everyone, I hope your day is filled with sunshine and be well.
