Congratulations to the Expectant Grandparents

Dear Governor and Todd Palin,

We understand you are expecting your first grandchild in the near future, and would like to extend a sincere wish for your family's peace and happiness.

Not every preganancy situation is perfect, but every child is precious and is a blessing from God. May you and Bristol enjoy this new little life, and may she be allowed to enjoy the joyous moments of pregancy that every woman is entitled to.

Please forgive the attacks of outsiders on a very private family matter, and please know that you have the support of millions of caring and praying Americans.

Bless this little life and bless Bristol as she makes this challenging, but incomparably rewarding, transition to parenthood.


TOPICS: Miscellaneous; Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS: blessing; bristol; grandchild; palin; palinfamily
Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

Please use this thread to show your support for this fine family.

This is going to take away all of Nazi Pelosi’s “grandmother” thunder that she received from the “media” during her coronation as Speaker. They all got “tingles” down their legs when Nazi sat their holding a child in a grandmotherly way and the “media” just melted. Now, Sarah will be able to hold a grandchild on her lap when John McCain is sworn it.

A real family dealing with real problems with love, grace and dignity is exactly who we need in Washington DC.

Thanks for posting...

Everyone of our kids except one was a surprise and they all seem to come at what might first appear to be an ‘inconvenient’ time as per popular culture's messed up priorities—I won't trade any of them for anything in the whole world.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Sincere Congratulations. We need to throw a baby shower worthy of Free Republic and put our money where our mouth is.

A lot different than Obama’s words that his daughters are not going to be punished by having his grandchild!!

God bless the Palin family and your message bears repeating:

You wrote: “We understand you are expecting your first grandchild in the near future, and would like to extend a sincere wish for your family’s peace and happiness.

Not every preganancy situation is perfect, but every child is precious and is a blessing from God. May you and Bristol enjoy this new little life, and may she be allowed to enjoy the joyous moments of pregancy that every woman is entitled to.

"Congratulations to Bristol Palin ..."

Ok people, that's a bit much. While I respect her for keeping the baby and marrying the father Congratulations for a teenage unwed pregnancy are not usually what we do around here

My oldest girl was in a similar situation, but a couple years older. Her getting married and having the child was the best thing for her and they are now expecting our second grandchild later this year.

Hey, Bristol... we’re in the D.C. area and if you need a babysitter, give us a call! I know you will have other offers, but our daughter isn’t married yet and we miss babies in the house.

Don’t worry kid, we’ve got your back.

Need baby blankets?

We are not celebrating a teenage pregnancy. We are celebrating life. As I stated, the situation is not perfect. This is still their first grandchild and still a blessing.

I thought about a Vanity post to organize a Free Republic baby shower, but I’m not much of an organizer or a mover and shaker. I do live in Las Vegas which is pretty cool though and a party city ;)

Don't like it? Too bad, I didn't write it for you.

Since I have lived through this experience myself, I can tell you that this is something the Irish call a “doubly joyous occasion”. Life happens all the time, I have never regretted marrying and having a baby as a teenager.

Another poster started this thread in support of Sarah and Todd Palin, the prospective grandparents. Did you want me to wish them ill?

I became a grandfather for the first time on Thanksgiving Day in 2007. What a wonderful feeling it is to welcome a new family member. It is an exciting time for a new grandparent, one that will bring out feelings of great pride as you watch your child experience the joys of a new baby just as you did years ago. You will love becoming reacquainted with toy stores as you seek out the noisiest toys you can find!! I just did that (again) Saturday evening.. LOL. Another child of God!! Alleluia!

As to the Palins, agreed.

On the topic of the DUmmies and Kos -- I'm not without sin, lemme tell ya, but if anyone wants to throw stones at them just on general principle, I'll sign up.

She’s already 17. That’s like an old lady compared to Jamie Lynn Spears, who said motherhood was a wonderful experience. I saw it on the cover of People magazine or one of its clones - teen pregnancy is cool, y’all!

I’m not shocked by the level of misogyny coming from the Democrats, just shocked by how blatent it is.

Who cares if the daughter is pregnant? I can’t believe they’re openly judging her for “finding herself as a sexual being.” Maybe they’re just sad that now they can’t make fun of her for being a prude.

The nasty idiots over at the DUmp are having a field day with this.

I believe this nastiness, which appears endemic to liberal trash, will come back and bite them big time.

They are in the process of deleting some of the nastier stuff, but I am archiving it for the whole world to see just what they are made of.

Very well said. Unwed motherhood is rarely, if ever, anything to rejoice over. But, the baby should be welcomed, and the mother should know that “the quality of mercy is not strained.” Hopefully, the Governor and her husband will help everyone understand that this is a very private matter, to be kept within the family.

Pregant, unwed teens used to be a horror story in Alaska. 36 per 1000 in 1991, the rate now has dropped to 18 per 1000 - while nationally the rate is still 23 per 1000 (ages 15 17)

THe child will have benifit of an extenedd family, proper (pre-natal) heath care and grandparents with the ability to handle the situation.

Good luck to all of them.
