The brother I’d always wanted

Author: Cathy
Birth Date: Mar. 1977?
Abortion Date: 1976?

I have a younger sister and had always thought it would be nice to have a brother. Well, many years ago, my mom told me that she had gotten pregnant about 3 months after having my sister and she couldn’t handle 3 children. So, she aborted my brother. I’ve thought about him a lot in recent years, especially since my mom passed away nearly 11 years ago. I don’t know if she ever regretted it. But, I do know that she ended up in a psychiatric hospital for a little while after my sister’s birth. Was it because she realized, too late, that she killed her son? I miss you, little brother. I will see you one day. I’m so sorry you didn’t get a chance to be born. 🙁
