16 & pregnant not just a reality show

My niece and daughter, who are both 16, just told us they are both pregnant. I know I should be supportive, but how can I. First reaction is hurt & anger. I don't want to be alienated from the baby. It's not the baby's problem. I don't know what to do or how to talk to either of them. Maybe I just need time to process.

I would give it some time and maybe even see if you can find someone to talk to. It may help to talk to someone outside the situation about your own feelings and they could help you come to terms with what's happening.
I wouldn't be impressed if my 16yo came home pregnant at all. You have dreams for your children and they usually don't include being a teenage Mother.
Hopefully you will be able to come to terms with it all and enjoy the new baby. XXXX
