I Can Finally Tell My Story
I didn't have a childhood. My parents never showed us love or compassion, all we had was work and maybe school while our dad abused us physically and emotionally.
I got pregnant at age 16. I was horrified at having to live that life…little did I know my real horror was about to begin the day my parents made me marry the father of my child. He was a complete nightmare.
I had 2 boys with him and when I got pregnant for the 3rd time he didn't want me to keep my baby. He left me with 2 kids to care for and I thought I was not going to be able to care for another at age 23 with two boys and another on the way. I didn't know where to turn. I never wanted to go back to my parents. They didn't want me back, especially with all these kids, so I thought!
Then one day I met my husband now, and he was like a Prince Charming to me. But he couldn’t be with me as I was pregnant and he was afraid of what his family would think or say. I talked to my sister on what I should do, and she said that she would have had aborted my two kids because of the torment being married to a wife beater!
I decided to go ahead and end my so called problem and asked my husband to take me to planned parenthood. It was the worst day of my life. I remember I kept telling myself, “Stop, what are doing?” But I couldn’t stop myself. I also tried to stop another girl from doing it and my weakness took over. I couldn't help my baby or the other. Oh how I wished my husband would have stopped me but he didn't. So I hated him as well as myself!
The clinic was a complete nightmare. I was drugged then called back to get my baby ripped out of me like trash! I was just a number in that so called clinic. I felt so ashamed, so low, so miserable, I kept it a secret for so long that I wanted to kill myself.
I was in such denial that up until now-- trying to remember what I was thinking still hurts so badly to remember that I didn't want to remember! Eleven years later, I heard God’s message at church through a fellow Rachel's vineyard member. I was healed through this miraculous retreat! God was there to receive my forgiveness to myself and others involved in my abortion. I can finally tell my story without guilt or pain. And because I am silent no more I can also be a messenger from God to others.
