I’m here at the World Congress of Families being held in Salt Lake City, Utah. To start the conference, children marched in with the flags of their countries. This was such a perfect spiritual beginning I couldn’t help but think of our dear castaways; it felt as if they were here in spirit. I’ve had the opportunity to gift my new book, The Castaways: Real-Life Accounts of Aborted Souls, to many people in attendance.
Today I also had the privilege of meeting Vickie Thorn, founder of Project Rachel, an amazing organization whose purpose is to empower women to heal from abortion as well as to encourage women to choose life for their unborn child. Project Rachel’s website, www.hopeafterabortion.com is a beautiful site! Their ministry is stated right on their home page: “It’s normal to grieve a pregnancy loss, including the loss of a child by abortion. It can form a hole in one’s heart, a hole so deep that sometimes it seems nothing can fill the emptiness. You are not alone….” Their logo expresses the essence of real healing. “Project Rachel: Peace starts here.”
Project Rachel is devoted to hope and healing, and offers many resources for the grieving survivors of abortion. I hope you’ll visit their site! There really is hope after abortion.
