I am an example of millions of people that have lived on planet earth. When I was born, my mother was on the run from the police, and my father was in prison for armed robbery. Ten days after my birthday, my mother was arrested. I was left at my grandmother’s house.
In 1992, I had an abortion and it took me until 2018 to truly forgive myself for it. For years, I had so much guilt about it and every August I would think about how old my baby would be since August would have been his birth month. I had 2 toddlers and my husband left me for another woman. I was so lost and depressed. I thought of ending my life. I was barely taking care of the two I had and I was wondering how I was going to take care of the one that that was growing in my belly.
But, it was still difficult to try and fit in with everyone as I was growing up. I would often wonder why I was created differently, asking myself, "Why would God make me go through this?" Well, after I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior, I became more willing to open up about my prosthetic leg and allow God to use my story for His glory.
