This Couple Survived

After an abortion it’s unlikely the relationship will survive.  Tom and Mary are the exception.  As we continue our observance of Abortion Recovery Awareness Month, let me tell you their story.  Both thought abortion was the answer, but it was like a darkness that “hung like a shroud” over everything, including their wedding day.  Mary didn’t allow herself to grieve for nearly three decades.  When the couple went to an abortion recovery retreat, the floodgates of grief and shame were flung open and healing finally began.  They named their daughter Sara Jean.  If you’re struggling with the aftermath of abortion, no matter how long ago.  We can link you with a free counselor who will help your path to healing.  Visit us at for more information and resources.
