Welcome to my blog! My name is Béatrice, I am French and have been living in the United States since 2005. I have a great husband, I stay at home with our 3 children and I am a happy, fulfilled Roman Catholic.

For most of my life, I lived as a spiritual atheist; I was anti-marriage, pro-abortion and pro sexual license. And I had never dreamed of living outside of Europe. I have been involved in destructive relationships and have had two abortions that have left scars invisible to others but vivid to me.

I used to believe that abortion is a necessary evil and today I want to spare my sisters that kind of suffering. I am pro-woman and pro-children and I don’t believe that you have to be pro-abortion or pro-choice to be a feminist. Bear with me as I explore this secret, dark topic. It’s always refreshing to open the window and let some air and light in a room that has been closed for years.

My hope is that people understand better what is going through a pregnant woman’s mind, her circumstances when she is making choices and the consequences of her decisions. I offer my moral support to my sisters who are in an unplanned pregnancy, regardless of their abortion stance.

How I would love to take away women’s suffering, regardless of creed and circumstances. We all deserve to live in peace, to be respected and to be loved.

In 400 words or less, I am sharing my thoughts, confessing my failures, lessons learned and my hope. Like Father Dwight Longenecker said in a retreat, “time doesn’t heal all wounds. There is only one thing that can heal our wounds. In fact, it is not a thing, it is a person and his name is Jesus.”
