Dont blame yourself, its a big step to put your daughter on the pill and you probally thought you had enough time to consider it a bit longer. You must feel so bad right now, but its not your fault. Young girls from ALL backgrounds fall pregnant regulary, so its not that you have failed her in anyways. Young girls are lead by their heats, romantic idealisms and hormones and your daughter has been caught out. A young member of our family became a mum at a very young age, and at the time my partents were horrifed, pregnangy outside marrage was a sin where I grew up. But now 8 years on, everything is fine and the little boy is very much a part of the family and loved to bits. You must feel shocked at the moment, especially as you were planning another child yourself. Keep strong, im sure you will get used to the idea soon and in years to come you will totally love and cherrish your first grandchild. Life is a very unexpexted, my freind who is only 29 has terminal cancer and will never have a family of her own. I know this dosent help, but there is the POSSIBILITY of a happy ending. good luck to you and yours X
