Sharon left Valley Pregnancy Center in 2014 to start Healing Tears. Healing Tears is a ministry about reaching more men and women who need to find help, hope and peace from an abortion experience in their past. Healing Tears is about expanding this ministry beyond the pregnancy center and into churches. We are currently serving the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California.

21st Century Issues: Healing Tears: A Powerful Ministry of Compassion to Hearts Wounded by Abortion


Do you know that 40% of the women in your congregation have had an abortion in their past? The impact of abortion is far reaching and often goes unnoticed for many years. Healing Tears exists to help those who are hurting from a past abortion and for those who want to assist those living with the aftermath of abortion.

Healing Tears offers hope and freedom through post-abortion recovery groups. It also provides education through panel presentations and workshops to assist those who would like to learn how to help others with their post-abortion pain.

Healing Tears offers support and guidance to work through the grieving process in order to reach true acceptance and freedom. Our desire is to expand this ministry beyond pregnancy centers and into churches.

The body of Christ can break the stigma and shame surrounding abortion, so those in our midst can find the help they need. Healing Tears is about the power of the Cross.

“Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Matthew 5:4
