It was 1976 and I was given money for an abortion. I chose adoption.
Had I kept my child how my life would have been so much better but clearly so different.
Had I kept him with me as I had really wanted, I would have smiled every day.
I never would have shed tears for 32 years. I never would have married the evil man I did. I never would live where I do now. I never would have learned all the things in life I needed to learn, about people and how they really are.
It would have been hard yes. I would have been an awesome Mommy to him. See I was not that strong back then I had no idea that giving him to a family who would adore him showed really how strong I was. I just never thought I could do it on my own and give him everything a child deserved.
So had I taken that road I would have done great. I never would have known you all and be able to share him all with you. Thirty two years after kissing him goodbye I was saying hello to him and starting a different journey, in fact down yet another road. Who knows where this one will take us but he is just like me so I think it will be FUN.
The Daily Post Prompt Fight or Flight!
Looking back at my adult years for some reason I always rush in.
I never stop and take the time to see if there will be any danger in doing so.
Maybe it started in my home as a child and Dad pulling over to help stranded motorists or maybe all the years I was a Girl Scout.
I have met some wonderful people by stopping and asking “Can I help you?”
Some I didn’t have to ask because if I had not done something they would have died. I could do with out worry and drama but it is who I am, I recuse animals or people and yes there have been times I wish I had put more thought into it.
