My child would be 24 years old now

My child would be 24 years old now and I am crying to this day, in fact tears are dropping on the computer as I type. The pain of loss is overwhelming. I will never stop loving my poor sweet dead child that I never saw. I have terrible flash backs of the day I was taken by my angry husband to the abortion clinic. I was crying and repeatedly saying how much I loved the child as I was put to sleep. I have not been able to tell anyone as I do not want my children who were born before the loss of their sibling to know what happened. I am so so so sad and so so so sorry, Please consider this very carefully. I send my love and understanding to all poor souls who have gone through this unspeakable trauma...

Tragic that you are still suffering so much after 24 years. That is terrible loss and regret to have to live with. I do hope you will contact CareConfidential to get some post abortion support and help. You can call the national helpline, log on to Online advisor, or follow the link to find a centre for post abortion support in your area.
