How to Tell My Parents I’m Pregnant: A Different Idea

To talk about what might be best in your unique situation, please call us at 630-455-0300. If you are thinking about telling your parents you’re pregnant – or still deciding what would be the best decision for your pregnancy – we are here to help.

One of our clients recently used a poem to help her tell her parents she’s pregnant. She had decided to parent and the poem worked well for her, so we thought we’d share it:

I do not have a face to see,
Or put inside a frame,
I do not have soft cheeks to kiss,
I don’t yet have a name.

You can’t yet hold my tiny hands,
Nor whisper in my ear.
It’s still too soon to sing a song,
Or cuddle me so near.

But all will change come May 28th.
That’s when they say I’m due.
I’m your new Grandchild,
I can’t wait till I meet you.

All I ask between now and then,
Is your patience as I grow.
I promise I’ll be worth the wait,
Because of all the love we’ll know.
