You said I would feel better. That was a lie. I was right, my mother suggested I stay at my sister’s, and my school have suggested that I just leave entirely. My due date is the same week as most of my exams (first of June). And no, I still don’t feel any love for the fucking thing. It has ruined my life. Hopefully I can get it removed before my exams start. I am not going to stop taking antidepressants, so you can fuck off if you think that I am obliged to. I knew you wouldn’t reply to me. Everyone was right, you stop caring when you know I will stay pregnant and further your agenda. I hate you and I hate this thing inside of me. If my sister changes her mind I’m getting an abortion. She is the only reason I am doing this. It’s her brat, not mine. I want nothing to do with it.

I apologize for the delay in responding, but I can assure you that it wasn’t because I don’t care about you anymore. I will always care about you and your child.

I said you would feel better about the rest of your life by not killing your child. If you killed your child, you would have the rest of your life to ask ‘what if’ and likely feel crushing guilt, especially when you would find yourself around babies and birthing mothers.

I gave you links to several resources to help open your eyes to the tragedy of abortion and you chose life for your baby boy or girl. You decided to face the challenge of doing the right thing and for that you will forever be your child’s hero, just as you are mine. You are strong enough to do this. Just remember, exams can always be rescheduled, your child cannot rise from the dead.

I want so much for you to love your little one as much as I love my children. Even if this takes time or never happens, at least you are giving him or her a birthday, proving there must be a tiny glimmer of hope hiding in the shadows.

Don’t give up on yourself and don’t give up on your baby. You will both make it through. Just stand strong and keep the big picture in focus. You can do this!
