For many years I suffered as a result of that choice. I spiraled downward, and when I hit the bottom, God was there with open arms. My journey has been long and hard. I have learned so many things along the way and have found forgiveness and healing that is unexplainable. I am devoted to protecting life, born and unborn, by educating people on the truth. The truth about abortion and all of its treacherous components. "I have been called by God to use my story, my baby and my journey in my efforts; in the hopes that even one person will learn from my mistake and choose to say "Yes' to the gift of life. There is a scar on my heart for my baby and it will never go away, but I will walk out the rest of my days carrying on and hon- oring her legacy. With all of my heart", Tracie Rademacher The St. Boniface Christian Women will host Tracie Rademacher on Tuesday, October 18 at 7:00 p.m., in the St. Boni- face Parish Center, 501 Main Street, Cold Spring.
