About this item

What happens when an abortion survivor finds her birth mother, who never knew her daughter was alive?Melissa Ohden is fourteen when she learns she is the survivor of a botched abortion. In this intimate memoir she details for the first time her search for her biological parents, and her own journey from anger and shame to faith and empowerment.After a decade-long search Melissa finally locates her birth father and writes to extend forgiveness, only to learn that he has died without answering her burning questions. Melissa becomes a mother herself in the very hospital where she was aborted. This experience transforms her attitude toward women who have had abortions, as does the miscarriage of her only son and the birth of a second daughter with complex health issues. But could anything prepare her for the day she finally meets her birth mother and hears her side of their story?This intensely personal story of love and redemption illumines the powerful bond between mother and child that can overcome all odds.Bronze Medal Winner, 2017 Living Now Awards, Independent Publisher
