My Beloved Aborted Sibling
My name is Brittany. I am 21 years old and found out not long ago that my mother was raped when she was 18 years old. She was confused and scared so she had an abortion. She had such horrific nightmares and such sorrow and pain from it, that later in her life, when she unexpectedly became pregnant with me, she kept me. She was unemployed and single, yet she knew she could never go through another abortion. She worked hard to raise me, but we are both so glad she chose life!
When I was little I used to frequently ask my mom for a sibling. I felt an empty spot in my young life. Apparently there are other siblings of aborted children who feel the same way. My heart breaks for all the things my sibling could’ve been. God is healing me and I know one day I’ll get to meet my sibling in heaven. Please don’t rob someone of life. It’s not their fault. My mom has had serious trauma from aborting my sibling conceived in rape. God has a plan for everyone. God bless.

I feel like I can understand the way you feel. I found out when I was in high school that my mother had gotten unexpectedly pregnant and had an abortion years before she married my father and conceived my brother and I. I think about my sibling often and wonder what they would’ve accomplished in their life had they the opportunity to live it. Would I have had another big brother to look out for me? Would I have had a big sister to help me do my hair and makeup and talk about boys with? Would they be parents themselves by now? I wish we had gotten the chance to know and love each other and hope to know them in heaven someday. Thank you for your letter!

Dear Britany, I am 59 years old and my mother had an abortion when I was 10. She was divorced from my dad and was raising my sister and I by herself. I understand the pressure she was under raising two girls by herself. (She always said we were better off without my dad as he is an alcoholic.) I think of my missing sibling on most family holidays and wonder what would have been. Sadly, my sister also had an abortion too so I am missing a sibling and a niece/nephew.
I now am a child of the King of Kings and I know someday I will see them both in heaven. That is what I take comfort in.
Britany, you are not alone with your pain. God bless you!
Sending ((((Hugs)))) to you!

When I was pregnant with my daughter, like 2 or 3 months or so, my mother offered her advice about abortion. Also, she revealed she aborted her second child when I was 3. So of course I was so angry and judged her right away because all I could see was a monster ripping a baby apart from pieces to pieces. I also had a close call with an abortion decision because I wasn’t ready and I was struggling with my son due to delayed speech, but thank God I chose to keep my daughter. It’s hard to forgive my mother sometimes. He (or she) and I could’ve grown up together, so I find myself wondering often did he or she suffer being aborted at 13 weeks? It breaks my heart to think about that.
