I wouldn’t change a thing.

I had an abortion at 16 years old. I wasn’t ready or capable of being a mother then and my partner wanted nothing to do with it. I haven’t spoken to him since the day I told him I was pregnant. I flew from Northern Ireland to Birmingham alone while my parents believed I was staying at a friends house. I then returned that night and sat my GCSE English exam the following day with the cramping at its worst. It may have been the hardest few days of my life at the time, but now at 23 years old, in a fantastic job and with a 5 month old baby and a partner I couldn’t love any more. I know this was the best decision I have ever made for myself. I’m proud of the person I am today and for what it’s taken to get to where I am.
