Re: Dear ladies, I need a sympathetic ear.......
My dear, A baby..what joy god has given you. Honey..this is sent to you for a reason. God never takes away that he doesn't give in return. Call your uncle and tell him the news. Tell him how excited you are. Tell him to tell your grandmother., Or have him put the phone to your grandmother's ear so you can tell him. Use this as a way to connect..it's a chance for you to bridge the gap.
I'm so sorry that they have had a falling out, This has driven a wedge between your family that isn't your's to heal, but see if the news of a great-grandchild can't brighten the day.
My prayers are with you and your family....and best wishes for you and your baby to be!
