First of all, I would like to say that I am so happy that you found us and are a member here at HealingWell. I think that you will find that this is a good place to come. Everybody is so kind and compassionate. We all struggle with depression so we understand what you are going through.
I am happy that your father is okay. I can understand why you chose to be there for him on that day. I am sorry for what your girlfriend did. But maybe it wasn't the right thing for her at the time. She is the one that would have had to deal with the responsibility of the child and the nine months of carrying it. Though I can see where you are coming from, you wanted the baby. Maybe there will be another one, but it has to be a mutual decision. Maybe she doesn't want children, has she said anything either way?
I don't really know the whole situation, so I don't know what exactly to say. But I can understand your grief. It may take a little time, I don't take abortion lightly, so I am not one to end a life as some do. But like I say, the woman has to bare the child, so they don't always want to go through that. I don't think I am sounding very tactful right now, I guess the words don't want to come out the way my mind wants them to. I guess what I am saying is I know how you feel. I think it is normal. I am sorry for your grief, but don't give up, you will have a child to love one day. You said that right now you are struggleing with finances, hopefully when the time comes you will be more financially secure and able to take care of that child that you so dearly want.
