THERE IS HOPE AND HEALING.

Share your experience with those who will listen and understand. Learning how to forgive others that were involved can be very hard. Recognise that they may have been misled or misinformed. Accept your role in the decision, whatever it was, and learn how to forgive yourself. Finally, acknowledge your child as member of your family. Giving your child a name and creating a memorial in his or her honour can help you find closure and bring peace and restoration to your life. From the moment your child was conceived , you created new life. Even though your child was never born, you will always be a father.

Have you experienced any of these feelings?

Anger, Helplesness, confusion, anxiety, depression, guilt, alcohol/drug abuse, suicidal thoughts, impotence, insomnia.

Do you feel alone?.  Perhaps you feel that no one understands what you are going through. 

You are not alone.  We care.  We can help you.

 For many men abortion is a traumatic experience of loss, and the thought of speaking out can be very intimidating.

 Perhaps you feel that you have no right to grieve. 

Perhaps you had not supported the mother of your aborted child, in fact you had encouraged her to abort. 

Maybe you had no choice in the decision. 

Perhaps the abortion was in your past,  a secret kept hidden for years, not even shared with your wife.

 There is hope, there is healing. 

At a Rachel's Vineyard retreat you will meet other men who have who have been through the same experience. 

THE RETREAT EXPERIENCE

 "The sense of relief that I felt" after participating in the Rachel's Vineyard retreat was beyond description.  It was obviously noticable, as a few of my friends said that I looked so much happier and lighter.  During that memorable weekend I was allowed to grieve for my children.  I now know that God has forgiven me, and that my children are with him".

"As the weekend progressed I was able to share my story without fear of being judged.  I had paid to have my child aborted.  The layers of grief, guilt and shame just melted away, and I thought I would never stop crying.   I now feel so much peace, and know that God has forgiven me, and that my child has also forgiven me.  Rachel's Vineyard has given me a new hope, a new beginning"

One decision, one single moment, can have such a detrimental impact on so many people, living and dead, born and yet to be conceived." Abortion doesn't just hurt women and children, as these men can attest to. Abortion hurts men, it hurts families, it hurts communities. And as my soon to be 2-year-old daughter, Olivia, gives testament to, abortion ends the lives of not just those that are already conceived, but those that would never then be conceived in the future.
