My Husband and I realized we were pregnant just a couple weeks after he received orders.

Had we maintained the pregnancy he would have deployed at my 20-22 week mark and wouldn’t return until our little one was around six months old. We began to question our reasons to parent and after realizing that we weren’t emotionally, mentally or financially prepared; we aborted at 6 weeks and 3 days.We’ve been relieved since that moment. My abortion was one of the most respected medical procedures in my life. There was no hatred,no blame, no guilt. Since then my husband and I have grown more jubilant and grateful for our time together as a couple.
