How could I?

On the outside I seem good.. straight A student, pre-medicine, bright future ahead of myself, and loving relationship. What no one sees is my struggle.. my empty bank account, my felony, my debt. I have no future until I can get my record expunged, how can I bring a child into a world where I can’t get a job, apartment, or even car insurance. I have failed, I would have failed him or her. I can’t put all that burden on my partner. I got an abortion because it wouldn’t have been fair to bring a child into my mess.

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