“I was scheduled for an abortion. I went to the appointment and they decided to do an ultrasound to confirm how far along I actually was.
To my surprise, I was already 13 ½ weeks. I could have still have had the procedure done. I watched the ultrasound and my heart just sank. I told the nurse that I would have to cancel because I could not go through with it. I could not terminate this child. I also knew I couldn’t raise this child, either.
As you see, we as women go through so many trials and tribulations. It is up to us to make the right decisions for ourselves. I know as a parent I am making the right decision, not only for me, but for the child involved.
Most importantly, I am giving the gift of life.”
