Surprisingly, the majority thought I should have had an abortion. Apparently abortion in the was more acceptable than adoption for the pro-abortion folks verbally vilified me for "giving your kid away like it was a puppy", harsh hurtful words. But my decision was as difficult as anything I have ever done in my life, and for people to openly judge that I chose her life, was a cruelty that only honed my pain to razor sharpness.
In time though, there was a shift, a lightness, undetectable to everyone but me, and I could finally sleep without tears, and I knew I would be forever changed, but I would survive.
A moving story. A very brave woman.

Had abortion been legal when I was conceived my life story would likely have been untold.
