Acceptance ... no matter what
She gets sick in the middle of breakfast. She's crying for no apparent reason during an insurance commercial. She falls asleep halfway through your excellent story. Accept her, no matter what. She's carrying your child. Acknowledge her beauty and goodness even when things get challenging. This same rule applies to your unborn child. Accept him or her, no matter what burdens or worries you face.
