I’m one in three. I got married at 25 and had two planned children by the age of 31. At 33, I had a surprise pregnancy. We chose to abort because we knew that a third child would dilute the attention that our two kids needed and damage an already stressed marriage.
We knew that the needs of a 3rd child would likely push us over the edge. Choosing to take care of the four of us was a very wise decision and one we’ve never regretted. Our marriage is strong now and our kids are in HS and college. They are both doing great because we were able to meet their physical, mental, emotional and financial needs. Every child should be loved, wanted, and well cared for.
