Baby Name: Amanda
Birth Date: November 1983
Abortion Date: May 1983

Dear Amanda,

I spent 25 years trying to forget but your memory would not die. Now I understand: your soul still lives. When God had me face the tragedy of my choice, you taught me forgiveness.

You are no longer nameless, my daughter. I’ve named you Amanda, which means Worthy of Love. I pray our story will knit our souls together for eternity and bring many wounded hearts into the loving arms of their Father in Heaven.
