Saving Grace - A Story of Adoption
L. B. Johnson
99¢ on Kindle
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 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 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.
“Five Stars! Saving Grace is a true and thought-provoking read. The author recounts her own personal life story and shares with readers how she was adopted at a very young age and then later, as a teen, makes the hard choice to give up her own baby for adoption. Readers will laugh, cry and reflect as they share the author's journey and, in turn, reflect on their own past challenges and hardships. The author keeps the focus on prevailing and rising above what comes at you in life. I loved how the book focused on relationships, hope and love! ”
