My partner and I have recently found out that we are expecting a happy surprise!!! After a life-time of health problems and other issues; we have been blessed with a miracle bean/pregnancy!!!!
We had pretty much given up on the possibility of a child. So now we will have a 16 year old (my step-son) and a new baby (my 1st biological). Since sharing this news with the brother –to-be, things have been very tense and he seems extra moody.
In addition this is of course a “high-risk” pregnancy, which brings with it a whole new kind of stress and emotional roll a coaster.
So how do we proceed in order to keep the older one feeling included and excited as well as secure and loved?
Thanks for all feedback,
