My Story

When I was 17, I had just gotten my first job, it was a big deal for me, making my own money, having some kind of independence and I was on top of the world. I met this really amazing guy and I thought to myself wow, everything is going great.

I fell in love, gave him every part of me. Until, I found out he had a girlfriend and lied to me the entire time we were together. Right after I broke up with him is when I found out I was pregnant.

I wanted to keep the baby, I really did but in my heart I knew I would’ve gone through it alone, I was in no position financially and mentally to handle a baby so I made the decision to abort the baby.

It was the most painful experience of my life, I cried every day for 6 months wondering if I made the right decision, now 2 years later I am proud that I did. I’m currently finishing my degree and I’m in a new healthy and loving relationship.

I’m writing this story to remind everyone that abortion is not a bad thing in any way, sometimes you have to make the tough decisions to be able to prosper in life.

I will always wonder what if, but if I stay in that mindset it would never let me experience what could be.

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