Never Leave a Drink Unattended

drink“During an outing with girlfriends I left a drink unattended and it ended up being the most horrifying night of my life. All I can tell other women is to please never leave a drink unattended when you are out, even if you are with someone.”

I Knew There Was Something Wrong

people on wet city street“I am a 35 year old mother of four girls. I found out I was pregnant while on vacation, and was so excited, my husband and I were thrilled at the thought of another baby. When I went to my ultrasound, they referred me to a Level II sonogram. I knew there was something wrong, I had that feeling. The doctor came in and told me that my baby girl had Dandy-Walker malformation and it was severe. Next I had to wait for an MRI to be done, which they then told me not only was the baby missing the dermis, but the kidneys were formed wrong.

When we mentioned abortion, the group of specialists acted like I was saying a curse word and told me that my insurance wouldn’t cover it and I would have to leave the state. I feel like the doctors purposely pushed my appointments back so that I couldn’t end my pregnancy in our state, and it would be so expensive I couldn’t afford it.

This has been the hardest thing we’ve ever done. I wouldn’t have been able to have this procedure without the charitable funds I received. And I couldn’t live with myself knowing my baby would have only known pain and suffering.”

He Would Not Consent to Adoption

heart on fence“I am 33 years old with two kids, a 2-yr old boy and a 1-yr old girl. I am unemployed and have been in an abusive relationship for 8 years. I have been secretly taking steps to improve and change my financial situation so that when I leave this time, I am financially secure and won’t feel obligated to return because I don’t have any way of supporting my kids. I need this abortion because I am not able to provide for this child and he would not consent to adoption. I am so very grateful to you for making this decision possible.”

Keeping My Life Together

fragile sign“I am 28, divorced and I have a horrible relationship with my children’s father. I was on the pill when this pregnancy happened. I am devastated and I am scared. Not sure if I am even doing the right thing. But I felt it was best for me and my family. My life is falling apart and I do not have a job, so we are basically homeless. Thank you for the help.”
