This is Ryan’s very RAW and real post-abortive story. She drove far to be a part of the After the Abortion photography series, but she felt it would really help her in her healing process. And she has come SO far! God is picking up her broken pieces and bringing such beauty into her life!
“The Ugliness of Shame”
This is a very difficult photo to look at, but I decided to include it, because I think there are many women out there who can relate to it. Ryan said that for years, when she looked into the mirror, this is what she felt was looking back at her. I love how God can take all of our guilt and shame and bring redemption and healing, if we will only turn to Him with a repentant heart. What a merciful and loving Father He is!
