You Changed Me Forever
Author: Anonymous Birth Date: July 2015 Abortion Date: November 2014
To my baby…I only knew I was pregnant for 10 days, but in that time I came to love you. You were changing my body and made a mark on my heart. I’m so sorry that I let my fear take over. I think your dad regrets it too. You were such a big surprise and we never should have let you go like that. I think about you every single day and I love you. I miss you. When I think of you, I picture you smiling down at me and wrapping yourself around me. I hope you can forgive me for not fighting for you. I never wanted kids which is why the decision seemed easy when I found out I was pregnant. But I actually feel like something is missing. I actually feel your absence and it makes me so sad. I think of the relationship we could have had and what joy you would have brought. I feel that you were an unexpected gift that your dad & I hastily threw away. I’ll regret it for the rest of my life. I love you so much and I’m so sorry. I miss you every day my beautiful, precious baby. Love, Mama xoxo

As your date approaches, picture your child in the setting of this poem that I wrote for my aborted child. My abortion was March 2, 1979 and the poem was written 2001. I buried my experience for 19 years before depression overtook me.
The poem: _____________
Don’t cry for me.
I’m here with Jesus, safe in His love.
Just wait ’til you get here and see what’s above.
The sparkle of diamonds; the glitter of gold;
the face of my Jesus, I daily behold.
I’m never sad. I never cry. I never ask my Jesus,
Thank you for forgiving us, Baby. I put a plaque in your honor on the wall of the National Memorial for the Unborn in Chattanooga, TN. It reads ” Baby Parr, March 2 1979.
