"Would this brief experiment have been worth not keeping our baby?"

The New York Times' Fashion ans Style section featured an article yesterday by Ronda Kaysen about her unplanned pregnancy and her decision to keep the child.

Note the word Kaysen uses to describe the child throughout the piece even when she was planning on having an abortion.

After reading this I'm left to wonder if Kaysen's child will ever read this piece and what his reaction to it would be. I'm left wondering what Kaysen would have done if her husband hadn't finally said, "Let's keep it." I'm left wondering how Kaysen would have handled the decision if her mother hadn't been so overjoyed at the prospects of a first grandchild.
