We welcomed Patti J. Smith, regional coordinator for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign for San Diego to share her story with us on Cradle My Heart.

Like so many other women who were set adrift emotionally after abortion, Patti entered an extended period of self-destructive behavior. Eventually she even destroyed her own fertility before she was able to find peace.

Her journey includes helping others through the darkness that follows after abortion through leading healing ministries and counseling.
