Marilyn T.
So many obstacles to overcome

I am 21 years old, pregnant with my first child, and unmarried. I recently informed my family of my current situation, and now they won't speak to me.

I am involved in a serious relationship, and my boyfriend is nothing but loving and supportive. But, we are not married yet, and I just found out that I am pregnant. Now I find that after telling our families - they are completely broken up over it and even went so far as to suggest adoption and abortion. My boyfriend and I do not believe in abortion and will not give away our baby, and we intend to raise this child in a loving home. But along with this decision comes many problems, including financial problems and the fact that we don't have a home to live together in. I really don't want to get married in a rush just because I am pregnant - but many people seem to think I should. Should we give into our families or just head out on our own? I want to believe everything will turn out for the best in the end, but with no conversation between our parents, it seems to be a lifetime away. Please offer any suggestions. Thankyou.

Lord, Bless Your children. They could have taken the easy way out, but didn't. I am joyous to know they are being so strong. Please help their families to let go of their judgments. "Judge lest ye be judged." Love and comfort them in their time of need. AMEN
