Hi. My name is Cristy for short. I went through an abortion and a breakup at the same time in September. Although I am "pro-choice,"
after my abortion (my first, and I certainly hope it will be my last), my stances on abortion have definitely changed. I no longer stand strongly on "pro-choice," but I still think a woman should be able to choose to continue her pregnancy or not. It really depends on the circumstances. In addition, multiple induced abortions can be a health risk to your body, so please do think wisely to not rely on these procedures for 'regular birth control.'
I was 11 weeks exactly on the day of my surgical abortion: September 25, 2011. I don't think I will ever forget the date or the time of my appointment: 11:40am. It was a tough decision to make since I became already attached to the 'unborn' child. I was going to keep it but because the baby's father suddenly did not want to be with me anymore, I had to make to make the decision to opt out the pregnancy. He still wanted me to keep the baby, but I thought (and still think) that it's selfish to bring a child into a 'chaotic' environment.
I'm Chinese and live in California with my family. I am in a relationship with a younger guy, who is 3 years younger than me. We will be together for a year in February. There have been many ups (and downs), but I generally think we are a great fit for each other. There is a lot of growing up on his end, however, I do see progress that he is trying, and I do hope when I reach my 30s, we will be able to have a loving family and some money to purchase our own home. I wish everybody the best!
I don't have a photo of myself, however, I do look young for my age, but judging from my words, it may not seem that way. I've learned a long way to try to master the English language since I've been raised by wonderful non-native speaking parents. But, Baby Gaga is one of those places where I can freely be myself, serious and comical and all! So, I'm glad I can display some graphics. Hehe. Still a kid at heart.
(Cause in real life, there's always happy AND stormy days!).
