15 years ago I was homeless and the only person that would give me somewhere to live expected sex as payment for their generosity. I ended up pregnant and in a crisis. He already had a child that he shared custody of and I saw the way he neglected that child. The Courts had deemed him a fit parent despite the way he swore at his child, drove around with his child crawling around the car without a seat belt and used his child as a weapon against the mother. I knew I didn’t want to be tied to this man forever. I had an abortion and although I was sad, it was the greatest relief. Once I had healed, I found a place to live and a loving man came into my life. I now have two daughters that are beautiful and kind people. I don’t have the slightest regret.
