Last month, one of my best friends shared with our group of friends that she had an abortion. While she wants to have children with her boyfriend someday, now is not that time. This was a courageous step for her, as many of the girls in our group of friends come from very conservative backgrounds. I was one of the few who supported her choice outright and stood up for her.
During this same time, my husband and I started trying to conceive. We’ve just found out that we are already pregnant! I am excited to share my news when I’m ready, but am afraid of opening fresh wounds with my best friend.
How do I tell my best friend I’m pregnant, while still affirming that I support her and her decision to end her pregnancy? — Ann
