Well, I'm glad I didn't go ahead with the abortion - it's not easy but definitely worth it

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.
