I don’t know you yet but soon I will. You might not be pregnant yet but in the coming month or year , you will find yourself with two pink lines on a pregnancy test-but you do not want to be a mom for whatever reason….you will feel hopeless and most likely, alone. I can’t imagine or even begin to imagine the feelings and emotions that will roll through your mind and heart. I can’t imagine feeling anything other than pure ecstasy at a positive test- but I know that many circumstances would make a pregnancy seem like the worst outcome.
You will probably disassociate by calling your baby “it” instead of he or she . You are probably already rolling the concept of abortion over in your mind…but have you considered adoption ? You see, for Everytime you are reminded of being pregnant, some other woman wishes she could be. Some other woman out there will do absolutely anything to adopt your baby and to love it and you as their own blood.
It takes a strong woman to go through with a pregnancy for the sake of another woman adopting her baby. But me and a million other women like me are here for you. I don’t know your story but I’m ready to listen. I don’t care if you screwed up and partied too hard freshman year of college, I don’t care if you just forgot protection one night, if you were abused, raped, drunk or drug influenced….I will NOT judge you. I just want you to realize that there are people here for you who are complete strangers to you, but I promise, we are already praying for you.
I’m not going to scold you for considering abortion, with almost ten years in medicine, I’ve learned that if you really want to do something I can’t stop you. Do I believe in it…absolutely not…do I understand it…not entirely….
You see, that first time I heard my boys heart beat I was head over heels in love . They were as real as you and me and to abort them , in my eyes would have been murder. I look at how smart and amazing they are. They are going to do GREAT things, and what if I would have aborted the person meant to iradicate cancer one day or a peacemaker or a future president- the possibilities would have been completely dissolved.
I can’t understand abortion BUT I can understand how you would feel so hopeless that you would feel that’s your only option. I can understand how if you were abused or raped that you would feel that having a baby would give that person control over you. I can empathize with how horrible those emotions must be.
But I promise you have hundreds if not thousands of families who love you and pray for you.
Tonight my boys and I prayed for you. Wesley, my four year old, wanted to have God keep you safe so that his baby sister will be safe too. He thinks it’s pretty cool that God would put his sister in another mommy’s tummy to bake. I want God to show you how incredibly strong you are. I want him to let you feel the love I have for you emitting from this letter. You will forever have a sister in me and a family in us. You will be giving us the greatest gift…a sacrifice of nine months of your life and a part of your soul and your story. We will be in your debt forever .
You may decide to not have contact with us . You may want a closed adoption but no matter what, you will be loved and prayed for.
I’m praying for you tonight. I’m praying that you rise above any circumstance that begins your journey, I pray it’s not a traumatic one and that it was just a mistake. I pray that you read this before you go through with abortion. I pray that you love Sophia, at least in some capacity, at least for the nine months that she is a part of you. I pray that you realize how strong you really are.
Lastly I pray you find us.
Thank you everyone for reading.
