Dear Laura,

I am so sorry for your loss and the pain you are trying to deal with. I'm also so glad you have posted here and I hope you get many comforting helpful responses. Please take a moment and visit this site:

It is really wonderful - also, if you google "post abortion" you will find some other good sites and help.

You need to forgive yourself honey - you cannot go on the way you are trying to drown out the pain - that will not work. You need to grieve and you need to heal. This will carry on and on into every area of your life if you don't.

In some larger cities you can find CPC's that offer FREE Post abortion counseling and I urge you to check in your area and see if that's available to you you can look for a place here:

Don't just put this aside and think it will wait. You need to do something now -

I hope that helps - I do care!

Kris

Laura,

I am so sorry! Obviously nobody ever told you what abortion was all about. You are not to blame for what you didn't know. That said, I agree with Kris. You need to forgive yourself. That's not easy. But it can be done. Let yourself grieve, as she said. You may find it helpful to do some kind of memorial for your daughter. You can plant a tree, or put a memorial online, and there are places that collect memorial plaques for display. Please read your Bible and seek God's forgiveness. He loves you, and He died for you, and even for what you have done. He forgave Paul, who murdered Christians, and made him into an apostle. What He did for Paul He is willing to do for you.

Don't try to drown your memories in alcohol or drugs. It won't help.

We love you and we will be here for you. Post any time.

Hugs,

Pat
