Dear Michelle,

I know many women who have had abortions, and none of them have been happy they had one once it was done with. I was also faced with an unplanned pregnancy at 17 and I know the shear fear when faced with that dilema. I went to Planned Parenthood and was offered an abortion - but I was also in a Catholic High School at the time and I knew what they taught about abortion and I just couldn't go through with that. Unfortunately, I miscarried - and that was traumatic as well. I had to ask my parents to take me to the ER - that's how they found out I was pregnant. Anyhow, I just tell you this so you know I know some of what I am talking about. I have not had an abortion - so I can't say I have walked in your shoes - but I do understand many of the aspects of such things. I've also seen the lifelong hurt and scars it leaves behind. That's why I do not think abortion is good for any woman.

You need to forgive yourself, you also need to ask God to forgive you and realize God loves you and your 5 year old daughter and He is not some big guy up in the sky waiting for his chance to snatch her from you! He gave her to you - He entrusted her to you - becuase you are worthy of having her.

This is a good web-site to visit as well:

http://www.safehavenministries.com/

please visit it.

You can also look up a pregnancy center in your area - many of them offer FREE post-abortion counseling - or can direct you to a support group:

http://www.pregnancycenters.org/advantage.asp

I encourage you to call them. You can also lend support to other women who have walked in your shoes and gain support from them as well.

Hugs,
Kris
