With a Heavy Heart…

Last week my niece came in and told me that a friend of hers died.  The young lady was in her early twenties,  mother of a 2 year old and was pregnant.
She died while getting an abortion.  This saddened me b/c this could have been me.
Hearing this made me reflect on my own life.
I had two abortions. One when I was 14 years old and another when I was 21 years old.  About 2 years after my second abortion, I found out I was pregnant again. I soon miscarried due having a weak cervix…caused by previous abortions. The doctor told me that I had no problem getting pregnant but it would be impossible for me to carry a child full term (my husband and I have 4 kids now, including a set of twins that I carried 39 weeks and a day!!!!)
When I heard about this, I remembered how overwhelmed and hopeless I felt when I found out I was pregnant. In so many ways I knew that I wasnt prepared to be a mother, financially or otherwise.  I didnt have anyone to talk to about my options and I thought that having an abortion was the only solution…I wonder if that young lady felt the same way.
I wonder if she had any support or if she even knew about adoption?

Now with a heavy heart I pray for her family and her young son.
I pray that any other young woman in her position know that they have options. Options other than abortion. And even if they choose the latter, that there are other women, Me, that can relate to where they’ve been…and tell them about the One who loves them unconditionally…all of the time.
