I bought the book because I wanted to understand birth mothers decisions' a little more. All I came away with was how they folded under the pressure of someone else telling them to give their children away, and how they found god. I understand the god part-after all, this book was edited by someone who works/worked for a christian maternity home. What I wanted was honesty; I didn't get that from this book. I felt a lot of emotions when I first started reading; when I had finished reading, I just felt anger. It didn't answer any questions for me. Maybe it soothes a-parents to read their stories, but as a KAD, it did nothing for me.
