I Can't Do It Again...

Dear Mardie,
I'm pregnant, again.
I went to the clinic, again.
But this time, something stopped me. I couldn't do it. I couldn't have another abortion.
Can you help me?
Melinda


Dear Melinda,

I wish I could reach through this computer and hug you right now. I have heard the same words from so many women, who had made that choice, and later just couldn't repeat it again.

Yes, I can help you.

Open adoption is a wonderful blessing for women, their children, and adoptive families. You can choose the family, have the opportunity to watch your child grow, and know that you are treasured as much as your child, if you choose to be.

Many families are so happy to embrace you as well as your child. They will not judge you for anything you have done, or any choice you have made. To them, you are truly an angel.

Melinda, think about your options. Call and speak with me or one of the women at our adoption center, anytime, at 1-800-923-6784.

Adoption isn't for everyone, but it may be right for you.

I do hope to speak with you. You are in my prayers,

Mardie
