My husband and I have deep regrets

I was given a name of an abortion clinic by my family doctor. At the time I felt there were no other alternatives -- I was scared and just wanted to get rid of the pregnancy. My boyfriend (now husband) and parents were involved.

I received absolutely no counseling -- just a fast explanation of the procedure at the clinic before hand.

The abortion was pretty typical and routine fast -- felt alone and sick afterwards in recovery. I was the last one to leave recovery -- felt I needed more time.

The abortion didn't affect me until years later (after I had become a Christian). My husband and I have deep regrets. I hurt more after our children and wondered if the baby we aborted would look like any of them.

I asked for God's forgiveness. I participated in a post-abortion support group and grief study at our church. This helped but it is harder to forgive ourselves.

You never stop thinking about that baby you aborted. I will forever be buried in the memory if it and regretfully can never block it out completely. My experience can be used for good and to maybe help others.
