Not Yet Ready

There was nothing I wanted more than to be a mother, but in having that desire it was also extremely important for me to make sure that I was not bringing a child into the world selfishly for them to have to struggle with me. When my financial and housing situation was unstable, I chose to abort.  Had I not made that choice I would not be in the place where I am today with a stable career and beautiful home that I share with my husband. I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy around the anniversary of my abortion and it might always be bittersweet, but I know making that choice when I did allowed me to be in a place where I was ready for the responsibility and could give my child the standard of living they deserve later down the road.
