Finding out that your 18 year old daughter is pregnant is not always the best news in the world and I’ll admit to being shocked and saddened by it. I’d always had a tricky relationship with her and it did feel like yet another blow in the storm that we were already going through. However, she was with a nice young man, although the relationship was very new but he was sticking by her and that was what mattered. She did need some stability in her life. By this time, she was no longer living at home due to the strains we were experiencing and was sharing with friends. Finding out a week or so later that she had miscarried the baby was hard, but we put it down to just one of those things. I knew she wasn’t looking after herself properly and so we all felt it was her body’s way of saying “just wait a bit longer”.
