When I see you in Heaven

Author: My First Name
Baby Name: Evangeline
Birth Date: September 1996
Abortion Date: January 1996

It’s been 22 years and I remember that day like it was yesterday. But I’ve slowly learned to forgive myself, as God forgave me a long time ago. It wasn’t a choice I made, but one forced upon me by my parents. I don’t know if my baby was a girl or not but in my heart I feel she was. To help me with the grief, I gave her a name, Evangeline. And on what would’ve been her 20th Christmas, I released 20 pink balloons, one with a poem I wrote for her. When I released them all at once, the one with the poem floated up in the sky to the east by itself while the others flew off to the west. I think that was her & God saying “you’re going to be ok now”. I regret that day but I know I’m my heart I will be united with her in Heaven. I love you Evangeline!
