Young and unprepared
Author: Anonymous Baby Name: Angel Birth Date: July 1995 Abortion Date: January 1995
I was 14 years old and felt like such a failure. I made a choice to sleep with boys. I wasn’t popular in school and had lots of bullies. My dad was a alcoholic and we didn’t have a close relationship. He never really warned me. He didn’t protect me from me. My mom was naive and believed every word I said. I was young and dumb. I got pregnant by a family friend. I had no idea you where a living being. I didn’t get it. My young mind didn’t understand. I’m sorry my little angel. I gave you back to God. You where a gift and I turned you away. I have cried over you for 21 years. I have asked God to forgive me and I know he has but I still hurt. You have 3 brothers and a sister now. I have often wondered if you look like them. Baby please understand momma loves you just as much. My mamaw knows you now. I bet her and Jesus are holding you tight. I know I’ll see you again someday. Until then please forgive me and know if I had the wisdom I do now you would be here with me. I stand against abortion firmly now and I have tried to stop a dear friend from making the same mistake but just like me she will live with the pain now.

Dear Amy, I am so sorry that you had to experience such a devastating situation so young. If you never attended an abortion recovery program, it would probably help you because you would hear other women’s stories and realize that you don’t have to carry that burden all alone. It’s been 36 years since my abortion and I am now in a recovery group. It helps a lot to hear their stories and know that we are accepting what we’ve done and God’s forgiveness. It was courageous of you to talk to your friend. Maybe you could go through a recovery program together when she is ready. One study is called, “Forgiven and Set Free”; another one is “Her choice to Heal”. You can locate both of those on line. Read Numbers 6:24-26 in the KJV Bible. That is the Lord’s message of blessing for you and your friend.
