I wish I was stronger

I lost my virginity at age 15, and I became pregnant. When my mother found out she immediately made an appointment at the clinic for an abortion. She never asked me what I wanted or what I believed in-I wish I had been stronger and advocated for you. I remember being driven to the clinic and begging her not to make me do this.
The procedure was a blur, but life has never been the same. I think of you everyday. I wonder who you would be today. I wonder if you’d look like me or your daddy. In my dreams (and nightmares) you are my little girl-my precious angel.
I hope you can forgive my naivity and my inability to stand up to my parents and give gou a chance at life. I’m so very, very sorry. I love you with every fiber of my being, my precious girl.
I’m so, so, so sorry ……..
