My little Jessica
If you are contemplating abortion, and scared to death about the child you are carrying, don’t be. I was 20 when my daughter Jessica was born. I do not regret a thing about bringing her into this world, because every soul on earth suffers in one way or another. She is a gift from God to me, that held this soul of mine together during a very disobedient time in my life. I often say that if it was not for her entering my life when she did, I wouldn’t be writing about this today. It was 1987, I was scared to tell my mom, but I knew I needed to tell her. I was having complications, so I went in to see the Doctor who actually delivered me. When the news came that I was indeed pregnant, in front of my mom and my sister, the Doctor asked me if I wanted to keep it. Without hesitation, I said yes. I honestly couldn’t believe he had asked me that, and those words damaged me later on in life.
I was exhausted when she came, had no clue what life was truly about but I had to learn fast. I did not have a clue about what it was to be a parent when she came. She was born on the Feast of The Little Flower and Baptized on St. Valentines Day. I did know that this little soul God gave me to care for, for Him, was a much needed anchor to my life. I was 20 years old, dirt poor, single and entered into a failed marriage simply because I was pregnant. Life was hard, really hard. But it became much harder when I said no to the life of another child entering into our life. Please see my post: The Pain Of Abortion
There is a lot more to this story with my daughter, but, the fact remains that life is amazingly better because of her being here. There is no one else on earth, who can say they truly grew up with me, but her. I love this woman.
Here we are today, 32 years later and that child became a very independent strong beautiful woman with a B.S. in Natural Resources, full of life and a life worth living Please let your child live. Life is not just about you. Life is about all of us.
No one is immune from suffering, neither was our Lord. Please do not listen to the talking heads telling you to murder your child through abortion. Let your child live, your life is not about you.
There is a fantastic movie out in theaters that each and every soul needs to see.
I highly suggest it.
