    I agree with you hun! I've had several friends who had baby showers and they werent married before having the baby. Never had a friend who had a baby by a married man. But you should still love your friend and support her and stand behind her. That's what she needs. Plus how would they feel if the position was reversed.

    It's shocking to me that in this day and age, some people still judge other people on their "sin". It's about time people realize that nobody is better or worse than anyone else. We are all equal. And any parent, who is having a baby, deserves a shower no matter what.

    I completely agree with you! We are not here to judge others and their sins, that is left to God. And either way the baby is born free of sins, completely pure, why should they suffer for the sins of their parents? And every mother deserves help, especially a single mother who seems to have not known what she got herself into. I think she should have a baby shower just as any other new mother would have regardless of her marital status.

    This is a wonderful post and I agree, you can dislike with how it came to be but the child needs to be brought into world of love and that starts with supporting the mother. I family member of my fiance got pregnant at a young age and no baby's father in the picture and their church/her immediate family didn't agree with giving a shower, but a few other family members threw one for her and invited them anyway. I firmly told people that I supported the shower and sent a huge basket of gifts.

    Hi Chelsea! This is so beautifully written 🙂 thank you for your openness. I totally agree that we are not the ones to judge others. We should accept and offer help where it is clearly needed. We cannot change others but we can change how we respond to be accepting and open-minded. Seriously, beautiful words of wisdom.
    🙂

    <3 I completely agree with you. She is the one who needs help the most. And, it's heartbreaking that her church, the place I would go for support, wasn't supportive of her when she needed it.

    Beautifully said. I agree with you- it's sad that she won't get the support from those she probably wants/ needs it from most. I love your blog by the way! I'm a fairly new follower 🙂
