Just found out through the grape vine that my son's father and his wife are expecting. My son is an only child and lives with me and my boyfriend of 5 yrs (my son is 7). While my son does want a sibling i am concerned as to the emotional and financial toll this may take on my son's well being. Cause not only is he getting one but he is getting three siblings! yep his father and wife are expecting triplets. I worry that my son is going to be pushed aside once these new babies arrive. Not to mention his father already complains and cries poverty, saying he cant afford his child support. So I am expecting him to try and use this as an excuse to get a downward modification in his child support which i personally think is unfair. dont misunderstand im not trying to be unreasonable but if you cant afford your first child dont have any more at least thats my opinion. Also from what i found out the wife is about 5 months along and they have yet to tell my son which i think is unfair this is something a child needs time to process. Has anyone else gone through something like this?
