I buried the pain of my abortion for many years. I didn’t discuss it with anyone until one day when talking with my pastor. I told him I didn’t forgive myself. I broke down in tears and told him about that awful day so long ago. He listened quietly as I struggled telling my story.
When I finished talking he told me about First Care Clinic and gave me the phone number. It took me a year to get up the courage to make the phone call. I’m so thankful I did.
Through Whole Heart I realized I was not alone in my pain. There were other women who had been suffering from lack of forgiveness, low self-esteem, and addictions just like me. Whole Heart brought so much closure for me in facing my problems related to the abortion. Because of the healing that took place in me, I have become a Whole Heart volunteer. I’m so thankful for this program and for those involved in it.
