New adoption themed book. Recently published and made available via Amazon. The author is Caroline Dixon and she happens to be the first mom of one my friends. Funny thing is that I have never met this friend in person yet we have been internet friends for close to ten years (maybe more?). We met on Livejournal and have stayed friendly through Facebook. I hope to get out to her part of the States some time in the future and meet her and her family for realz!
The book description on Amazon:
Where does love begin? Experience true love from the perspective of, The First Mom. A touching story that will make its way into every inch of your heart, tapping into every emotion a person can feel: joy, enlightenment, sadness, and even anger, Caroline pulls back the curtain on the life of a teenage mother as she shares her story of abandonment and rejection for the choices she made as a sixteen year old teenager. Reuniting with her daughter, Rebecca, did not come as easily as she’d hoped. Yet the pain, overshadowed by joy, reveals the love of being The First Mom. Providence For A First Mom is a must read.
I am just about done with Tapioca Fire by Suzanne Gilbert and this is next on the list. You can buy it on Amazon.
