PRONUNCIATION: Share-ell (not Shirley) K-rich-bomb (not Kerch-bomb)—although it's a German last name, we pronounce it American-style: just like it is spelled. KR-itch-bomb.
AGE: 52 (and not afraid to tell anyone)
LIVES: In northern Virginia near Washington, DC; originally from Minnesota; lived south of Atlanta for a few years (I talk about all three in the book)
MARRIED: to Russ; we have two teen boys (Russ is not the father of my aborted baby.)
EYES: As I talk about in the book, I was born with my left eyelid closed. I have had four surgeries to open the lid, and now it doesn't like the close. My right eye acts normally. The effect is that I wink at people. Most people don't notice or don't say anything, but some people do and wonder if I'm being insincere or if I'm flirting with them. I am not flirting, but Russ didn't know that when I met him, and as a result he asked me out on a date. So, my birth defect helped me land the love of my life!

Cheryl Krichbaum is a speaker, author, and creator of online courses. She is passionate about speaking directly to the concerns of abortion-minded women, an audience she knows well because she used to be one of them.
Cheryl had an abortion when she was 17. Today, her daughter would be 33 years old. She honors her daughter by helping the pro-life speak directly to pro-choice concerns so that abortion in The Church is reduced from 36% to ZERO.
