We know what you’re struggling with right now, because we have been where you are, and have struggled with the same issues and emotions that you are dealing with right now —- and so have thousands of other women who have come to First Steps — trying to making sense of it all and finding the “off” switch for the roller coaster of emotion that comes in the aftermath of going through an abortion.

The aftermath comes with feelings such as guilt, shame, regret, depression, anxiety, and anger, and struggles such as broken relationships. We have been there, and we can tell you that there is hope. You can be renewed.

Embarking on this journey may feel like a rollercoaster at times because you may have dealt with some of these issues already, but as you go through the course, you will find that some of them have not been dealt with yet. To face them may be difficult, but at the end the reward is redemption, a feeling of renewed strength, and peace.
