Unfotunately,any idiot can have a baby-its how they behave once the baby is born that makes all the difference to the child in question.
Some people (like yourself), realise very quickly, what a huge responsibility it is to bring a new life into the world,and do everything in your power, to do what is right for the little darling.
Others, think that having a baby is just something to do,coz everyones -totally like -doing it!
I know one person, who is mentally challenged (to say the least) who is having her 4th child-yet she can barely look after the 3 she already has.
The partner is thick as a brick,and is in complete denial that everything will be ok (yet here they are, no money to buy nappies for their youngest,or buy food for their eldest's school lunch).
Each of the children have been to hospital at least once for serious issues (which couldv'e been avoided)- and im so afraid of what will happen once the new bub arrives.
I could go on and on,but long story short- what can ya do???
I just try not to think about them,and just focus on my own family. I cant afford to be stressing about things i cannot change,especially now that im pregnant myself.
Best of luck with everything,and good on you for doing the best you can to provide a safe and happy life for your little bub!
