I have also put this question, but shorter in the ask an apolist forum. However, I need a quick response, so I am open to more advice. My brother loves me and I love him. However he has been in and out of trouble including trying to offer to pay half to have his own child, my niece or nephew killed. I am upset because he told my mom this, because his girlfriend confided in my mom first. Otherwise he was planning not to tell his parents, his girlfriend told her.
I want to confront him, but I really want to tell him how dissappointed I am in him. He has had other children and already one of his girlfriends had an abortion, because she lied to my mom and said she was going to have the baby. Then she turned around and took an abortion pill. I cried about that child.
My brother does have one boy who is alive, thanks to God and one child who died in his mom’s womb (not by abortion). Who knows how many times he could have offered to pay half to have any other children of his killed. I am disgusted and I don’t know how not to cry about this. Yet I know my brothers soul is in danger and I thought I talked to him about how wrong aiding in abortion was, yet he doesn’t seem to understand. His girlfriend, my mom and I did talk to, about her keeping the baby or giving the baby up for adoption. She says she wants to keep the baby. I told her I was upset with my brother for basically not encouraging her to keep her child and she told me that he looks up to me, and not to say anything that would make him think that I hate him. I have to say this is an overwhelming situation and I don’t like being in it. I have been dealing with my family and overwhelming situations for a while now and it is stressing me out. My prayer life is getting compromised and I feel like I should pray more now than ever before, but all I want to do is cry. I am not very strong anymore and I need to be, but how?Each situation seems to wear me down more and more and I don’t know what to do. God is there, but I think I am having some kind of unreasonable darkness surrounding my mind. May the Blessed Mother take possession of my mind.
