Take it off your chest...
Read Rules

I was raised by my grandparents. I'm married for two years now, only 22 two years old. My grandmothers very ill and has a very weak heart. She could last a year, or 10 years. No one knows but I wouldn't count on it being the latter. I know, especially growing up the way I did, how important it is to be financially stable and mentally ready to have children. But the one thing I want most for in life right now is for my Grandma, my Mother, to see my first born and hold my child. It would mean the world to me. I sometimes wish I could be like the peers of my high school and just have a kid right now. But that would be selfish and stupid. Yet everyday I worry as she grows weaker.

  • I am so sorry for you to hear about it. Don't have a baby just for this, your grandma would probably not hear that you had a kid specially for her, she would prefer you to make your life like you want it, and the way that makes you happy.

  • Don't lose hope, miracles do happen! My aunt, who has breast cancer that has, by this point, spread through all of her body and is terminal (the most the doctors give her is 2 years) thought she would never see her grandchildren or even one of their children getting married. Well, now my cousin got pregnant by accident, but since she and her boyfriend are together for 7 years now, they decided to marry and keep the child. My cousin is only 21, and my aunt is 54, but I have never ever seen her so happy. In August, she'll get to hold her grandchild, which is more than she ever hoped for. I wish you all the best, and I hope your wish will be fullfilled.
