So scared…..

Author: Jan

I was 24, alone and pregnant after a weekend fling. Couldn’t tell my parents. Couldn’t tell anyone. Felt that there was only one option: abortion. Planned Parenthood confirmed my pregnancy, and I left with a phone number for a clinic. After my abortion, I felt relief for about a week. But driving home one day, it hit me: I killed my child. I was overcome with grief. This was 32 years ago, and I still feel that grief EVERY day. It is the biggest regret of my life. Once it’s done, it can’t be undone. Thank God for Rachel’s Vineyard, it helped me to finally forgive myself. But it remains the biggest regret of my life.
