Pregnant and alone, I felt abortion was my only option. When I couldn't bring myself to go through with the abortion, I set out on a lifetime's journey as a Jewish birth mother. Twenty-plus years later, I not only speak to other women about being a Jewish Birthmother and my experience with adoption, but I also discuss my fight through the life in which I have lived.
I ran from telling my story because of the shame - ashamed of myself and afraid of shaming my family. I ran for many years, but now I stand strong. It's time to break the stigma!
