Ronda's Story

I'm 25 years old, and  I will have an abortion tomorrow at morning. I have 2 months and  I'm  not so sure to do it yet. I look around to see what else can I do. The father whose name is Jesus, is 18 years old, we was getting fun, and we fall in love and this I guess is the consequence. The truth is that he's not working in nothing real, and I will have my best opportunity to work in my field and be successful.

I'm wondering if  I will have the courage to do it? If I will regret this for the rest of my life. The father wants to be there for me, but I think, that it make things worse. I don't know what will be the result tomorrow and the rest of my life, I'm just want to share how I feel now.

I will write to my baby a letter, to say how I love him, and How I would like to offer a good life, but for now, I can't maintain a baby, I can't even maintain myself, I know this is one of the most difficult choices in my life, hope to learn the lesson.
