A Better Mom

Gosh I wanted so bad to continue this pregnancy but I couldn’t. It wouldn’t have been fair to my 2yr old daughter. When I got pregnant with her I entered motherhood as a single mom. I was living with my mom in a toxic environment. I was on welfare and barely scraping by. Eventually after much hard work I got an apartment and was off of public assistance. I finally had extra money. I was finally THRIVING instead of just SURVIVING. Then several months after getting my apartment I got pregnant. From the moment I found out I knew I wanted to terminate the pregnancy. I knew if I kept this pregnancy I would go back to struggling and I didn’t want to go back to that dark place. I had worked too hard to go backwards. I decided it wasn’t fair to my daughter. I made the choice for us.
