I was 19 when I found out I was pregnant

Author: Anonymous

When I was growing up, both of my parents were drug addicts. My grandma was the rock in our family. She ended up raising me.

I was 19 when I found out I was pregnant, and at that point I was already a mother of one. My boyfriend was shaken. I didn’t know what to do, and I didn’t have any support. I just wanted someone there to support me and love me.

I ended up having an abortion. The abortion took me down a lot of roads I never thought I would go, from drugs to promiscuity…All because of the abortion.

One morning I was eating breakfast when this man came up to me and said, “God bless you.” I felt like, at that moment, God was right there with me. When I finally surrendered, it was like a boom.

Today, I volunteer for a nonprofit organization that helps post-abortive women. The Bible says that we are overcomers when we share our story and our testimony. Even though my decision was tragic, God has brought so much life out of it.
