Birth control doesn’t always work

I had three abortions with the person who would become my husband.


Each time we were using condoms and they broke, I took plan B and it didn’t work.

The first time was shortly after we met, I was 22 and not even close to ready. He said he would support me no matter what I chose.

The second was a few years later.

The third was after we were married, when I still wasn’t ready.


The last one was the hardest decision because on paper we would’ve been ‘fine’ but I knew it wasn’t my time.

This past year we welcomed a daughter into our life, when he was ready, when I was ready. We planned for her, waited for her, and she is beyond loved, because we knew it was finally right for us.

Remember that our stories are ours to tell. We’d love to hear your story too!
