We got a phone call last night informing us that the mother had decided to abort. She was 14 weeks. Right at the very end of the time frame our state allows. We had an appt next month to learn the sex. I am so upset and angry. I don't know why she chose to do this. Money was not a hardship for her- she had medicaid and we were paying her transportation to and from drs and we were going to be paying her for her time away from work as per our agreement. I just don't understand. I feel like my heart has been ripped out. We were prepared for the fact she my decide to keep the child after birth but this just never even crossed my mind. How could she? What would make her do this? Whatever it was we could have helped her. Why did she have to kill our baby?
