After my mom and dad divorced she met Eddie. This is the one I was told about. I do not remember him. I was only 2. The significance of this man is simple. He would have been the father to my sister. My mom wasnt with him very long. But it was long enough for her to get pregnant. Then he left. I cannot begin to imagine what my mom was going through. Despite my own beliefs I do not judge her for her decision. Everyone has a right to do what they think is best. So did she. I know she struggled with the decision because it took her 5 months to finally have the abortion. By this time they knew the sex. Female. My mom told me she would have named her Tammy Lynn had she kept her. I was angry with her for years for her decision but at the end of the day who are we to judge someone else’s position, emotions and fear. She was alone with me already. She must have been terrified. I learned through my life not to judge anyone. Life is scary and making mistakes is even scarier. We all do the best with what we have and what we know.
