In 2004, at the end of April I attended a Rachel’s Vineyard weekend retreat for healing after abortion. I had scheduled a visit with my parents for Mother’s Day weekend just two weeks later. What was I thinking? My mother knows me so well that I knew I couldn’t hide from her that something overwhelming had occurred in my life. I was so raw from the retreat that I really didn’t want to tell my parents, but I knew that I couldn’t hide it from my mother. So, what to do?
