Summary
Melissa Ohden is fourteen when she learns she is only alive because she was rescued after a botched abortion. In this intimate memoir she details for the first time her search for her parents, and her own journey from rage and shame to faith and empowerment. After a decade-long search Melissa finally locates her father and writes to extend forgiveness, only to read that he has died suddenly-before he can answer her burning questions. Then her mother's parents refuse to pass along Melissa's letter. Years later, when she finally hears from the woman who carried her and gave her life, Melissa finds out why. But the shocking truth is more than she can bear. Yet even the most startling family secrets are eclipsed by the triumphant moment when Melissa becomes a mother herself in the very hospital where she was aborted. And she reveals how-through the miscarriage of her only son, the birth of a second daughter with major medical issues, and her own mother's story-she gained a deep empathy for every woman who has had an abortion. Like none other, this intensely personal story of love and redemption cuts through the debates surrounding a divisive contemporary issue to touch our common humanity
