Hello Lisa,

This is an issue between mother and daughter. In my opinion, we never know what is on the mind and heart of another person. If the mother wants to give this lovely gift to her daughter, I do not see how that is up to you. Remember, this girl is going to deliver her mother's grandchild. You cannot begin to understand the complicated emotional dynamic present here. Just support your friend's decision.

Thanks for an interesting question.
