I look back now

  I was 25 and just broken up with my boyfriend who I had found out on Christmas day of 2011 had cheated on me with his daughter's mom when I found out I was pregnant.

I was terrified. I already had two children that I had from a previous relationship and marriage that I raised full-time, so I knew I was not going to be able to take care of a third. I told my ex-boyfriend, and he told me that he was not going to be there for the baby and that he would sign his rights over. It was then and there that I had made the decision to abort my child.

I called and scheduled an appointment with Planned Parenthood in Memphis, TN and had talked to my sister and dad about it.  They both agreed it was probably best....NOT! It was the worst decision I have ever made.

I look back now and can honestly say I would have rather lived in a halfway house with my three children then to have aborted one. After the year and four months of grieving the loss I endured from my abortion I am silent no more!
