I really want to thank you for having the courage to take an unbiased stand and just offer help to those in need of it. I am the mother of a 15 month old and the day he was born, I found myself saying “how could anyone abort a child like this?” Then 6 short months later I found myself pregnant again, and living paycheck to paycheck, concentrating all my time on my child. My husband and I agonized with the decision to abort up until the time it was performed. I still feel as if only someone had said something I would not have done it. It was, and still is the hardest choice I have ever made. I feel guilty everytime I see a pregnant woman, a newborn baby, or hear of a couple desperately wanting a child of thier own..not to mention the protesters who hover around the local hospital. But, I know that ultimately it has to be the right choice for me. It would not have been fair for that child to come into such a chaotic world, where he/she would be living in poverty. Thank you again.

I think what you have done in response to your daughter’s life is remarkable. I, for one, only wish I had such a support system over 28 years ago. Thank you for your dedication and thank you for reaching out to all the men and women who you will help today.

I just want to say that what you are doing is truly admirable. I was in that position myself at one time, and growing up Roman Catholic, it was very emotionally overwhelming to me. Your heart and your head are not thinking in unison and you feel like you are literally being torn in half. I don’t think any woman makes that decision frivelously. Pro -lifers seem to like to call it the easy way out, when I can say with conviction that it is absolutely not… Its such a ‘dirty little secret” so you don’t talk about it because you worry about what people will think of you… and so you keep it inside and it eats away at your soul until you can find resolution somehow…and sometimes it never comes… From the bottom of my heart I would like to thank you from myself and any other girl in the world who has walked the same path alone. Keep up the good work.
If I can ever do anything to help you in some capacity, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

I noticed your billboard on Frankford Ave and it lead me to this site. It has had a great impact on me. First, I would like to extend my deepest sympathy for your loss. I can’t imagine what pain this has caused. When I was a teenager, my girlfriend and I found ourselves in a similar situation. Abortion was never an option. Today, we are still together and our daughter is 17. Maybe none of that has anything to do with your mission, but I’m just trying to convey some related background. My daughter and I talk often about this issue. It just so happens that when I noticed your billboard, her friend was confronted with an unplanned pregnancy. Her mother insisted that she have an abortion. She confided in my daughter that those weren’t her wishes. My daughter found all of this very unsettling. To make a long story short, We viewed your site together one evening. What I was trying to instill in my daughter was that no matter what happens, whatever decision is made, all that matters is that the girl has our support without judgment. Your site was instrumental in opening my daughter’s eyes to the overall impact such an experience can have on a person. Thank You.
