“My own abortion haunts me yet, but in those moments of sadness, I have most often found a way to let myself be carried to deep reflection and remember the constant reminders of mercy that I heard during my healing journey. Thus, despite time limitations and life stresses, my healing continues, and most times now, I choose mercy when darkness calls.”
~ Mary Ellen
