It was the best decision I had ever made in my life.

Twenty five years ago my husband and I decided to abort our baby and went to hospital to discuss the date with the doctor. Yet I decided not go through with the abortion and seven months later I had a premature and very sick baby (the reason why I wanted the abortion in the first place). It was the best decision I had ever made in my life. My 25 year old son is a fine young man already running a successful business and a very loving and caring person. He takes care of us now in our old and difficult days. Editor’s note: Thank you for telling us your story! It must have been a difficult time when your baby was so ill but it’s wonderful to hear that you can look back happily and enjoy having your son with you now.
