A Story of Healing

A Story of Healing  from our Sisters in Italy – received from a friend who wishes to remain  anonymous . . .

I found out that I was pregnant. At the beginning I thought I would have an abortion. My boyfriend agreed. He was scared and didn’t feel like he was ready to be a father. I was also afraid of losing my job: after a year and a half of contract work, I had finally been offered a permanent position.

I made the appointment, and I even remember the exact date. I was sick that my desire was finally coming true—before I hadn’t been able to stay pregnant and now I was not able to keep the baby.

The doctor who performed my sonogram explained that I could give the baby up for adoption if I couldn’t keep it. He said, “Think of how beautiful this baby will be!”
