Saving Grace: A Story of Adoption

The Amazon #1 Best Seller from the International Award Winning Author of “The Book of Barkley”.

It started with a piece of paper—a birth certificate, sent to the author’s parents long after her birth. There is much history in that piece of paper. For she was born to an unwed mother in the generation prior to Roe v. Wade, on a warm day in August–a small, painful beginning in which she had been an unwilling participant, yet one that would shape her destiny. She is adopted into a loving Christian home with another child that would become her beloved brother. Then as her brother leaves for the military, her mother dying ¬†from cancer, and her Dad ¬†consumed with grief, she finds herself alone, to emotionally fend for herself.

Looking for a lifeline, she finds herself pregnant; she’s a teen and a college student, abandoned at the news. The options are obvious, but there is only one decision she could make: to give her child up to a family praying for one, and walking away. Saving Grace is more than a story of adoption. It’s a deep look into family–at hope and faith and why we end our days surrounded by souls that may not bear our name or share our blood, but who are our true family.
