My abuser, my older brother, has gotten his girl friend pregnant. His gf is physically and emotionally abusive to him. She is due to have a baby girl towards the end of December. Her baby shower is coming up, and I know my family wants me to go. I do want to go. This will be my first niece and my family means everything to me. However, ever since I found out that their child is a girl, I can't seem to get excited about being an aunt. In fact, I feel so bad for this child being born into this situation. I feel so selfish for not wanting to be apart of this babies life. After all, it was not her fault for any of this. I just don't know what it is that I should do. I really want nothing to do with my brother, but I don't want to punish the baby for his mistakes. Not to mention, how he and her mother are both potential abusers. The whole situation stinks. I guess I just need guidance, or just support. Thanks.
