Getting a little Political & Personal Here

Thursday, October 25, 2012

One of the hot topics this election is abortion for rape and incest victims. Well, I was adopted in 1966. The story that my maternal grandmother told the lawyer that processed my adoption was not the truth. She said that my 13 year old birth mother got pregnant with me during a Catholic church taffy pull during spring break. When I was told that I knew it wasn't true, it just didn't make sense. In 1992 when I was pregnant with my third child I found my birth mother and she told me the truth. She was being molested by her step-brother and when she told her mother she didn't believe her, then when she got pregnant my grandmother wanted the family doctor to abort me. My 13 year old mother said NO, she told her mother that she didn't believe her when she told her what was happening and she was having the baby. My grandmother took my mother to California where I was born and adopted by parents who couldn't have any children. I had a wonderful life was raised with a younger brother who was also adopted. Regardless of how I was created my life wasn't a mistake. The baby shouldn't pay the price for however he or she is created. I pray as you go to the polls to vote you will remember my story, and the courage and love of my birth mother, Angelina who was just 13 when she made that decision.
