As a terrifed teenage girl with an unplanned pregnancy, Tracy Dunn Lyons read through every book on adoption she could find.
While she found lots of them, none told her the information she wanted to know:
· What’s it really like to place a baby for adoption?
· Would the pain associated with placing a baby for adoption ever end?
· Was it really the right choice—and would it be worth it?
In this book, she reveals how she ended up with an unplanned pregnancy in the first place, and the emotional roller coaster she went on in deciding whether to keep her baby or place him for adoption.
Abortion, she shares, was never an option—and she was shocked at how quickly some suggested it. As a devoted Catholic, she knew the value of a life. To this day, she recalls a bumper sticker her grandmother had on her car with a powerful message: “It’s a child, not a choice.”
After placing her son for adoption, she remained involved in his life, but she eventually took a step back. Years later, they rediscovered their bond—one that remains strong today.
