Yesterday, was my baby’s birthday. The birthday where he turned 16. All I could do as I sat there was to think about how precious he is.
I was so very scared when I found out I was pregnant. I was living alone my boyfriend had just broken up with me. I was devastated.
I just knew I couldn’t do it by myself. So, when the dad suggested an abortion I seriously considered it. Yes, it would make the “problem” go away but could I look at myself in the mirror afterwards. I felt shame for even considering abortion.
I decided – not because I was positive it was right but because I knew I couldn’t face the alternative – to keep what I knew was a life inside of me. I know today that even though we are punished for our wrongs that God gives us the opportunity to make them right and has rewarded me for that choice.
As I look at him today all I can do is to thank God that he helped me to make the right decision and giving us another day together!
