If you have lived for any number of years, you have probably found that life can be filled with a lot of unexpected situations and trials. At times, the situations can be positive and make one feel excited and hopeful about life and the future. At other times, though, the situations can be challenging and cause one to feel overwhelmed, sad, and alone. It is during these challenging times that we can make one of two choices: press on and overcome the challenge or fall apart and be overcome by the challenge.
Many times when women come in to the Restore Program, they admit they are struggling with their feelings after having had an abortion. They say things like,
“I am feeling so alone and have a lot of regret about the choice I made.”
“I can’t even get up out of bed because I am so depressed and disappointed in myself.”
“I can’t seem to forgive myself for what I’ve done. How am I supposed to move forward in life?”
Even though the women can identify what is bothering them, they may not know what to do about it and how to overcome the issues. Thankfully, there are places like the Restore Program, who can help women sort through their emotions and come to a place of understanding and healing.
After the women have gone through the Restore Program and have been able to process through their experiences with their leaders, it is wonderful to hear their reactions and share in their excitement about the healing they’ve gone through. Here are some recent examples of what the clients have said,
“My Restore leaders were wonderful at listening and made connections with my experience. This program has saved me!”
“The amount of support I felt was amazing. Beforehand, I thought I would never heal but now I am healing and so grateful.”
“Before the program, I was depressed, angry, ashamed, and lonely. As I went through the program, I felt hopeful about my healing. Restore has changed my life in so many ways. I have grown and learned so much. I am so grateful!”
