Lou? Bon? Do either of you know how to contact Robin? Based on what she said about where she lives and her Catholic upbringing, I believe she and I were in Catholic school together, and I'd love to get in touch with her.

Thank you for sharing your story... I was raised in a pro choice family... my folks didn't believe in God... (but still in my heart I knew there was a God) I had two abortions... I've suffered intensely... I'm Catholic now and healing. In the Church that I don't recognize in your comments I have found welcome, friendship and healing, but most importantly I have found the King of Kings, my Savior. I'm married now, my husband and I are trying to adopt a baby... we're going to Guatemala, or Haiti... We're not sure that an African American mom would choose us, because we're white... It's complicated, but it's not the fault of the Catholic Church, the Church is made up of ordinary folks who make mistakes too... I had to stop blaming everyone else for abortions... My children died in my womb, that's a fact... just because I couldn't take on the responsibility didn't give me the right to kill them... that's just plain wrong... I learned too late... we're all children of a loving God... My worth isn't in my "wantedness." I went to the March for Life for the first time a few years back... who would have ever thought, me, pro choice defender, would have found myself in a sea of folks who had the truth... having been to the gates of hell and back... I'm finally home... those pictures of the aborted babies I find beautiful... beautiful human beings... and I pray the day when all of our hearts will be healed... when it won't come to this: abortion.

I have adopted and I am raising a bi-racial child. His mother became pregnant when she was 17, and was kicked out of her Catholic High School for getting pregnant. They thought she would be a poor example for the other students, since she was also a cheerleader. She had already secured a full-tuition cheerleading scholarship to ASU, which she then lost.

I'm glad she decided not to have an abortion. I love my son very much. He was born in 1993 and is 11 now.

This was incredibly moving.

Thank you.
