Lynn's Story

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.

I 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.
