Iím so sorry about what youíre going through right now. I donít know if it helps at all to know that youíre not alone Ė what youíre feeling is experienced by many women who have had an abortion, and itís ok to allow yourself to grieve. Healing is a process and I would encourage you to seek some outside help and support. If youíre not sure where to start, you might check out the OptionLine
website and click where you see ďAfter Abortion.Ē There are some good resources there and also a directory for centers that offer programs Ė I see youíre in the UK, and it looks like there are some there Ė even if theyíre not near where you live, you may be able to just call and talk with someone. Another possibility is CARE for the Family Ė you could call them at (029) 2081 0800 or check their website
for some other referrals. I work with an organization in the US called Focus on the Family, which is associated with this one, and we have some resources that might be helpful for you too Ė a booklet called Healing the Hurt
, and a book, A Solitary Sorrow
. Iím glad youíre reaching out here, and Iíll be praying that youíll find comfort and peace. Take care, ok?
