Well it is kind of past the fact of it being a choice to have a baby or not. I would have approached the conversation differently. Instead I would have said we are going to have a baby in (whatever month). Then addressed their concerns being open and honest but also positive. Are there going to be issues.....maybe, but are there going to be all the issues they may think......most likely not. Everyone has fears/concerns when there is change. It is all unknown and most of the time that brings with it fears and concerns. That does not mean that it is bad. Some times the best things come from change.
