A happy outcome

Update on my story about considering abortion from week 5. Well I'm glad I didn't go ahead with the abortion although as I expected some people have been quite disapproving and have been gossiping about it.
**I am glad to say the people who really care about me have been overwhelmingly supportive**. It's not easy but definitely worth it. Seeing couples who want children but can't have them makes me realise just how precious this child is and how blessed I am. Thank you for the phone support you gave me on several occasions. You are an amazing team of people.
