"I was 19, and my ex-boyfriend and I were and still are in college. Scared, the first person who came to mind was my mom and how poor our family is and how I can't afford to fail her and put her through this.

"I aborted my little girl, Avery, eight years ago. I made the wrong "choice" and am still working to recover from my abortion. Although I will never heal completely there is hope that my story can be used for good.
