Abortion Story: New Jersey

Submitted to Abort73 by a 34-year-old woman on September 11, 2016.

I have a child with special needs. While I am so thankful for him, his care causes me stress and worry all of the time. When I became pregnant again, I let fear and anxiety take over. I was afraid that I couldn't care for another child. I was afraid another baby would pull me away from my child who had additional needs. I was afraid the anxiety and depression would increase and I wouldn't be able to function at my work or for my kids. I thought I was doing the right thing. One year later, I regret my decision every day. I wake up sad, and I go to sleep sad. I know my life would have been hard with another child, but at least there would also be the joy of another child. Now I have emptiness. I feel a separation from God and even though I have confessed my sin and prayed for forgiveness, I struggle with forgiving myself. I encourage anyone considering abortion to talk with someone to help and support you through the choice. I would go back if I could.
