It's confirmed, she's pregnant!

This goes to all who have read my previous post more than a week ago which was about my suspicion that my youngest sibling is pregnant. It's finally confirmed and she's pregnant of five months. The truth came out just this morning. My mom's younger sister called her up through her mobile phone and asked her if she's pregnant. I believe my sister couldn't do anything but admit it to her. Our aunt has been branded as a strict aunt, but I have been with her family since I started my schooling and personally, I know that this is her way to inculcate discipline to her daughter and to me, too. After their brief conversation, I heard my sibling cry in the room she shares with my other younger sister. Then, we rushed to her side and queried about the incident. Her cellphone rang again. This time, it's my mom calling. I expected beforehand that my mom would get furious but it turned out to be the opposite. She remained calm as ever and instead of saying inedible words or cursing her daughter, she proved to be as understanding a mother that she is. She even reminded us to comfort our youngest sibling. We all burst into tears. Even now as I write, I get teary-eyed upon thinking of this incident a while ago. I have looked up to my mom as a model mom; not a perfect person but a loving and understanding mother; and today, I became even proud to belong to a mother as she is. I don't know if I could do everything she had done for us. But I do thank God for my mom. For everyone, thanks for all the advice you've shared with me during this trying time for our family. I believe God has answered all your good wishes for my sister and our family. Still, I'm asking for your prayer. Please do pray for my sister's strength, that she may be able to be a mother to her child and still finish her studies. Thanks again. Your advice are deeply appreciated and treasured.

wow.. u have a go0d mom.. because i also got pregnant at the age of 23, i was at the right age but my mom doesnt want me to have a baby because she wants me to be married before having one. unfortunately, the baby was the first to come along before marrying.. that time my mother got angry to me., she doesnt talk to me at all, she really makes me feel that she dont want the baby., until the baby was born, i was surprised when i saw my mom at the hospital., she was the one who assist me to the nursery to check my baby and he told me 'he is cute' .. and i cried., and i told my mom 'sorry'.. and to my surprise my mom asked me if its ok with me that she will be the one who will give name to my son.. i was so so happy then.. i realized that even our mom got mad to us., she remains to be happy if we achieved something.. and there is only one word our mom loves to hear if we done something wrong., and dat is 'sorry'... even we done smthng wrong our mom is always there for us..:)

Yes, I'm so thankful for having her for a mom. I guess some moms are really like that of your mom. After all, they bore every pain for us, took care of us, sent us to school for education. I really couldn't blame her for getting angry at you at first. But eventually her mother instinct got the better of her. Anyway, thanks for your reply.

I know things will work out for your sister at the end. You have a very understanding mom. She really knows how to deal with the matter and didn't let her emotions rule the situation. Goodluck to your sister and to your whole family.

I believe that God has shown us once again that He hears us and He answers prayers. Before my suspicion had been confirmed, I was praying that mom will accept the situation; and indeed, she has accepted it already. Thanks for your good wishes for my sister and our family.

Yes, I was surprised to discover that my mom would take this situation pretty well. I really do hope that my youngest sister will learn a lesson from this particular situation and emerge to be as understanding as our mom.
