“When I was 15 I had an abortion. At the time it seemed like my only option. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about it. I kept this secret for years. Shame, guilt, depression, anger, regret all filled my heart and I thought I would never get out of it. I knew I needed to share this secret and try to get some help.  I met the most amazing woman, Janet, who has helped me through this entire process. Of course, I was terrified to walk into the Center for the first time. But when Janet told me about the ReKnew program, for the first time I felt like I had found something that might actually give me healing. There is no way for me to put into words how life changing this program was for me! The 8-week program helped me to understand and deal with all of the things I had kept silent for so long. This program and the amazing women that help run it changed my life forever.”


“I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t want people to see me as a failure, so I decided to have the abortion. Nobody ever talks about what happens to the woman afterward. I thought that having the abortion would solve the problem, but it was as if the problem had just started.  I felt empty.  I felt like I was alone.  When I came to Assurance I was dying on the inside.  I needed a place to go that was safe and where I wouldn’t be judged. Now my life is completely different.  They helped me renew my life.  From that point forward, I felt no shame like I had been restored.  Assurance gave me my life back.”


“I remember the day I went into the abortion clinic.  All I could think of was covering this up.  If I do this, nobody will know. It was the worst mistake of my life.  I always had that scar, that emptiness, that guilt that I carried with me.  I aborted my future, or so I thought.  Through Assurance I found forgiveness. I have been able to forgive myself.  Healing for once and for all. Now the tears aren’t because of the guilt, I cry because of the release. This is where I became healed.”


“I walked into Sunday School. My heart was beating rapidly. I knew what was coming.  Emily began to share her story. She talked about her abortion openly. I was shocked and amazed by her bravery. For the first time in my life, I was hearing a woman share her pain – my pain, my heartache. Those 45 minutes changed everything. The next day I contacted Assurance and met with Janet. At the time, I thought I had done as much healing as a person could do a decade after an abortion. In the end, I agreed to be a part of the next ReKnew group.  To be honest, is was difficult to go back to the life-shattering day and remember the pain I kept buried deep within my heart.  And then one day everything clicked.  I’m not sure how to describe it, but there was finally peace within my heart.  I began to grieve fully and intentionally.  The idea that I was actually allowed to grieve was a life-altering experience.”


“I was so embarrassed.  There was a problem I had to make go away.  Thirty years ago, I had two abortions and never told another soul about it. I was alone, if you think about it, for thirty years because I never shared this secret with anyone. I always had this nagging secret that somebody might find out. When I came to Assurance I learned I’m not the only one in this position.”
