Downward Spiral

I had an abortion because I was told by my ob/gyn that I was going to have a child with hydrocephaly because of high blood sugars.  During the abortion procedure I was sedated so I couldn't remember anything.  Immediately after the abortion, I sought love physically and got pregnant two more times in 3 months period.  As time went on after the abortions I felt I was in a dark downward spiral of despair and I desperately needed help.  I sought out Fr. John Cline who provided counseling and reconciliation.  He referred me to NFP group and I was trained.  I stopped having sexual relations with my fiance by then.  We've been married for almost 25 years and we have a beautiful daughter.  I found help and forgiveness through Fr. Cline, but most recently (2009) through our current priest, Fr. Karl Pung and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. 

In late 2011, my husband and I went together on a Rachel's Vineyard weekend.  This was a healing for both of us as we shared the sorrow together which previously I'd experienced alone.  It brought us closer together and solidified our marriage.  Two weeks later, I was told by the Holy Spirit and Fr. Karl to write my testimony.   Initially I shared it with him, and he said it was time for me to share it with others.  Hence, I've told my story to close friends, our daughter, prayer group, and my father.
