I am 33 years old, married and have four children. Two daughters
of my own, and a step son and step daughter. I had complications with both of
my pregnancies and this resulted in my having a hysterectomy at the age of 24.
My husband and I are Christians,
and Thank God daily for all that we have. The one thing that hurts the most, is
that we can not share the beautiful gift of childbirth together. We want nothing
more than to raise a baby together. We have checked into adoption,
and it is extremely expensive. We are not rich in material things, but we certainly
are overflowing with love.
I do not
condemn anyone for the choices they make regarding pregnancy. No one knows anyone's
circumstances unless they are the ones bearing them.
would like to say however, I am one who would gladly accept the honor of caring
for, loving, and raising your baby should you choose to have it. Regardless of
your decision, May God Bless you and comfort you during your times of uncertainty.
