Once the excitement and happiness reaches a more manageable level after discovering that you are pregnant, then you need to put some real thought into life. What sort of life do you wish for your child?
This could be the most fundamental questions you and your partner will ever face. Why? Because you have to finally think about what life really is and how you will guide your child. What sort of a life do you wish for your child? If you need more information and are not a ‘reader', then perhaps you will find some ideas from listening to audio books.
There are all sorts of airy-fairy things we all want our kids to have and enjoy but in this thinking we have to add practicality and reality to what we will be teaching our children.
I think one of the nicest things that I have ever heard wished for a child was ‘acceptance’.
At the time I didn’t properly understand the wish and thought it was a bit weird. But as my life progressed, and my children grew up into the sort of adults we hoped for, their own ‘karma’ came into play. Their own needs and characteristics developed over and above the fundamentals we had wanted for them.
These you can’t do anything about but can only hope you have instilled enough of your own life philosophies into their thinking. The most basic yet comprehensive of these is love. Love of God, love of self, love of life and love for everything and everyone around them.
Because if your child is gay, believe me, all these attributes will be sorely tested in them.
This is why the wish of ‘acceptance’ became such a precious wish.
