We have a beloved family member who is expecting, and she is alarmed at how many eyebrows are raised when they comment that she is carrying "No. 4." Although she thinks of innumerable responses, she is reaching a point now where she thinks that outlandish comments or questions might provide her a great evangelistic opportunity to return, in charity, thought-provoking answers about the faith and/or life. Perhaps several different short comments that she could have at hand would be helpful, to just be able to plant a seed of an idea about pro-life attitudes or the faith or families, because there are so many times daily that she is given unsolicited (sometimes outlandish) comments or asked well-meaning but sometimes silly questions.
Don't worry about providing the entertaining or snarky comments. She has thought of most of those already and even some cheeky ones, and she is now, after prayerfully reconsidering, planning not to waste the rest of her pregnancy on those types of responses. They don't stop the revealing (of lack of understanding of the beauty of life and expanding families) and sometimes rude comments anyway. Any ideas would be appreciated.
