Update: It's All Happening THIS Year
Justin went back to Jacksonville with Chelsea Sunday night. He didn't want her to be down there by herself. She had classes all week. It's now Thursday night. We have found out that Chelsea's pregnancy will not be covered under her parent's insurance, simply because it does not cover a dependent's pregnancy. So, the only other route they can take at this point is to get on Medicaid. I hate that they have to go this route, but they, nor I, nor her parents can pay for the prenatal visits and the birth. It's not the end of the world. That's what it is there for. I and my husband have paid our fair share of taxes, so that should cover it! At least now they can go ahead and get married, and not have to worry about being covered under her parents' insurance.
Chelsea went to the doctor today. They found out that the baby will be due just after Thanksgiving. It's weird to think that this very year I am going to have a grandchild. It's surreal. I certainly don't feel old enough for that! Do all first time grandparents feel this way? Come to think of it, probably not. I know someone who wishes her children would produce a grandchild for her. And now, I'm gonna have a grandchild before her! Wow. That's just not right.
This will be the first great grandchild for my father-in-law. He is tickled to death. I know that he doesn't agree with the way in which it happened. But, he said that all we can do now is to love them and support them. I only wish my mother-in-law were here to witness this blessed event. She would know all the right things to say and do. I miss her so much. On the other hand, it will be my mom and dad's 5th great grandchild, so it wasn't as big of a shock to them. They still haven't met Chelsea, but I hope to change all that this weekend.
And here is the best news of all. Justin has an interview tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. at Home Depot!! I pray that this works out for him so that we all won't have to worry about him finding work. They are coming home this weekend. Chelsea is going to her parents to spend some time with them. Please continue to keep us in your prayers because God is definitely hearing them!
