My family feels sad…
I was unmarried at 19 years old. My mother and boyfriend knew that I wanted
to have an abortion. I felt at the time it was the only answer.
I was in the hospital at 8:00 AM. I believe that I had a suction abortion.

my life. I was mentally a wreck. I can see hope of total healing for me. It will
be a while before then.
