Chris Fabry and the Kendrick Brothers, LLC team up again to bring another fantastic heartwarming story!

Melissa had a tough life after her parents divorced.  She stayed with her dad, but after he remarried, he spent less time with her and more time with his stepchildren.  Before long, she decided it was best to leave home behind and move in with her boyfriend, Bryan.  What she never counted on was getting pregnant.  After much turmoil, she decided it was best to put her baby up for adoption so that he could have a better life than she could give him, but she never forgets about him, thinking of him often. 

Susan and Jimmy Colton have had heartbreak in earlier pregnancies and trying to adopt a child.  On a whim, Jimmy decides to resubmit their application letter when they receive a call that a mother in Indianapolis has chosen their family to be the recipient of her baby.  Both Jimmy and Susan have always been open with their son, David, about his adoption and have been supportive if he ever wanted to reach out to his biological parents.

David has always kept the topic of his adoption closed except for the people who are closest to him.  When he gets a call from the legal team of the adoption agency that the birth mother has updated her contact information, he decides to make contact to appease his parents.  He never expected the flood that would be released in the future!

As usual, the Kendrick Brothers idea mixed with Chris Fabry’s storytelling makes for a fantastic story!  The plot is a pro-life story and the good that can come out of choosing adoption over abortion.  It is predictable, but a story like this is intended to be, especially because of the bigger audience, but someone might find this book who is in this situation and be riveted to see what can happen when you look at a bigger picture.  I love to read books before watching movies and this will be no exception.  There will likely be a little bit of storyline removed for the movie, but only enough that it won’t be that noticeable.  It was easy to relate to the characters and Melissa’s predicament was well written.  I love the way this story comes full circle from beginning to end!
