Undeserving of forgiveness
Author: Tzeitel Baby Name: Avner Ephraim Bartholomew Birth Date: March 4 2012 Abortion Date: July 26 2011
Words cannot describe the loss. You would be three years old and I cannot express how much I miss you. I love you and have always loved you. I was young, stupid, and impressionable. No mistake will ever weigh on me the way my killing you has. My precious baby. I am so unimaginably sorry.

My heart instantly connected with yours when I read your story recently. It may help you to read my own personal story of brokenness and finally my restoration. My true story is called, Baby Rose in Heaven, and was submitted on 5-28-2014.
The day I realized that I, too, was underserving of forgiveness was the day that I embraced Jesus’ unconditional love for me. I emotionally felt His love and mercy for me. Jesus is my Redeemer and Restorer, in spite of my grievous sin of abortion in June of 1971.
In November 2014, my husband and I had an engraving etched onto a granite memorial bench at the Hope Memorial for the Unborn in CA. We placed our baby daughter’s full name on the engraving, Rose Ann Jones, in order to give her honor and dignity that she has always deserved. I am so thankful that she is safely in Heaven with God and Jesus. Our hearts are now open to receiving God’s mercy and grace and passing on the message of God’s redeeming love to others. Blessings, Charlotte
