Thanks for sharing these truths in your story...the pain of abortion can go on for a lifetime, forgiveness is only a breath away. Good job.

One line is the theme of this story for me, "...an older face softened by suffering, filled with kindness and understanding." You did a good job showing how God so often uses our mistakes, near-mistakes, sin and suffering to soften our hearts and grow the blessed fruit of "kindness and understanding". With you saying this is based on a true story, it makes me wonder if Ruth switched from working at PP to ministering at a crisis pregnancy center. Many blessings on you, AND your writing ministry!
Love your word choices - very descriptive. suggestion: I believe in laboring over the best title possible, choose one that is worthy of your excellent writing and story telling skills!!! Plus, no explanation is needed - your story stands on its own merit!
