Lee-Ann's Story

I was 22 years old, and involved in a very abusive and unstable relationship - during my last year of college. I knew I did not want a child with this man- I just wanted to forget he ever existed! I was never so scared and alone in all my life. I could not talk to anyone (my family) because they are totally against abortions. I found this website and a couple others and read the stories of other desperate and scared women and it helped me get through it...although I was all alone, in my the back of my mind I knew I wasn't. I think about the pregnancy all the time.....and now I am sure it was the right choice and the smart choice to make…because I would be a single mother right now with a 5 1/2 month old baby with no job living with my father.
