First Post! Coming out of the abortion.

So, about 6 months ago I felt called to write a book. I was going to write a book about adoption. Next thing you know I am praying and the good Lord makes it clear that I have to tell my whole story. I am sure I am not hearing properly. So I pray again and write about adoption. Then I hear the words I figure...well it won't hurt to just write. I don't have to ever publish the book if I don't want to but it will be good therapy. I had told myself I would never ever ever ever ever tell anyone about the abortion I had when I was 19 (which by the way is over 20 years ago). But I started writing. I finished the book on my oldest daughter's birthday. The book is called "To Be a mother" and is going to be edited soon and I will self publish. The amazing thing was the book and my life are truly a testimony to God's forgiveness and grace in my life. I did end up becoming a mother and am so proud to be a mother of 2 children by birth and 4 adopted. I suffered intense depression and was near suicide post abortion but through prayer and the power of the Holy SPirit I somehow was saved.

I am calling this blog REVIVING MOTHERS because I pray that we all know God can revive us, forgive us and offer us an incredible life through His healing. I hope to also work with other post abortive women and women who have suffered great loss or are infertile. I believe we can all be mother's regardless of our past or physical limitations. I am also going to start a forum so we can all chat there in love.
