“At some time, everyone is a stray”
From the Author of the Amazon #1 Best Seller The Book of Barkley – Love and Life Through the Eyes of a Labrador Retriever – a story of family, redemption, and hope. You're going to love Saving Grace: A Story of Adoption.
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.
Saving Grace: A Story of Adoption
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 home with another child that would become her beloved brother. 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
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.
What I like most about this book is the author, L.B. Johnson, paints a picture that unfolds as you turn the pages. The book originally started as a journal she wrote to her daughter after she was given up for adoption. She really takes a look inside herself and puts her heart on the line to share her journey through life with all the lessons learned both good and bad. At the end of the book you can't help but smile and shed a tear or two. A perfect summer read!
