The Christmas story is filled with all kinds of unexpected turns. It begins in Matthew with what happened to Joseph in the birth of Jesus.
He wasn't asked, wasn't consulted. The woman he loved was suddenly pregnant with a child that he knew wasn't his.
That's Joseph's story. Broken dreams, shattered plans. Sometimes your story might go in a similar way, and that is the time to figure out how to respond in the way Joseph did.
