An innocent victim of a destructive family

Author: Christina
Baby Name: Joshua
Abortion Date: 1986

I was born into a highly dysfunctional family, with a mother who was abusive, mentally and physically. My doctor decided to take me off the pill for a time, and my fiancee (now husband) wanted to continue to ‘fool’ around. Before I knew it I was pregnant. I began to have nightmares that my mother came into my room in the middle of the night and cut the baby out of me while I slept, in order to avoid the shame of an unwed pregnant daughter. My fiancee and I were fresh out of college, earning next to nothing, and couldn’t afford to marry yet.I made a decision that will haunt me for life.Fortunately, I went on to have 3 amazing children that I am fiercely protective of, and I know God has forgiven me.
