I had an abortion 18 years ago and i regret it
I was 21 when I had an abortion. The circumstances of my life back then did not permit me to bring a child into the world, well I felt that my child would not have the life it deserves if I was to have a baby at a young age without any financial security. I am now childless and I regret my decision. I have always thought about my baby over the years and realise that if I had of had the baby, my life would have been better and the baby would have had the life it deserved. I just wish I had the maturity to realise that back then. I suppose 18 years of age is an important age and I wish my baby was here so I could celebrate his birthday. I have made some terrible life choices and my life went downhill after I had the abortion. It is only the last couple of years I realised that I had been grieving for 15 years for my baby. I often wonder if my baby is my guardian angel with me over the years giving me the strength to get through the hard times that I created for myself.
