He Was No Accident
Just yesterday I found out what my baby was going to be. The first male in four living generations. Instead of everyone getting excited (I thought they would this time, like it became more of a reality), all they did was interrupt me and say, well, somebody else is having a baby, "guess who?"
And it's a woman that has been married and has a child by another man ... (I don't care but looked down on in this family) who hasn't been in the family nearly as long as I have. Nobody even cared to know cuz everyone was throwing a party for her in the background. A party I wasn't invited to.
I feel so left out. These people are crazy. I shouldn't feel bad, there are so many other people that support and already love this baby, but I'm scared of how my child will be treated.
Have you ever felt not so important by your significant other's or own family just because you are younger or different? Has your child ? How do you handle it?
