Baby Name: April
Birth Date: June 1977
Abortion Date: December 17, 1976

My dear baby, how can you ever forgive me? Why didn’t I run out of the hospital? Why wasn’t I brave enough to save you? Not one person in my life encouraged me to have you. I was 16 years old but old enough to take care of you.
No one ever mentioned you to me again.
I always felt like you were a girl and I wanted to name you April.
You would be almost 40 and I know we would be close. I have two sons and really don’t see them very often. What a horrible things I did!
