Pregnant and alone, Lori Prashker-Thomas felt abortion was her only option. When she couldn’t bring herself to go through with the abortion, she set out on a lifetime’s journey as a Jewish birthmother. Twenty-plus years later, Lori not only speak to other women about being a Jewish birthmother and her experience with adoption, but she also discuss her fight through the life in which she had lived.
Lori ran from telling her story because of the shame –ashamed of herself and afraid of shaming her family. She ran for many years, but now she stands strong. It’s time to break the stigma!
