I had an abortion awhile back and I literally think of it every day. I have multiple friends who are pregnant and all due around the same time as my baby would of been. I’m trying so hard to be excited and I really am for them, but I am terribly sad and miss my baby so much. I think I made the right choice, but honestly I don’t know. I do know my friends baby will be a part of my life as our kids are very close already. I only have boys and in my heart I feel like my baby was the little girl I always dreamed of.

I literally had to have the abortion and wake up the next day like everything was fine. Nobody besides my best friend knew what I had done. So trying to keep it all in has been difficult. I am not the same person I was 7 months ago and I don’t think I ever will be. I never thought 2 pills would affect my life so much. I thought it was the right solution to the problem at the time and now I’ll never know.

You deserve nonjudgmental
after-abortion support.
