keeping it simple

I would like to start sharing my book with all of you.  Right now it is titled "The Birth" but this is subject to change.
I am connecting really well with the main character in the book, Abby.  The book begins in 1969 and takes us to the present day.  Abby is 21, she has an incredible job as an Airline Stewardess but one night in Paris will change Abby's life forever...
Currently I am on Chapter five, I need to go back and do some revisions and eventually I would like to start sharing some excerpts from the book with you.
As I have shared in an earlier blog, this book surrounds the issues of adoption. It is a fictional book however you will learn the heartaches of what Birthmothers had to endure back in the 60's and 70's.  In many cases these young woman would give birth and their newborn would be taken away from them, to never see their baby again. This book will also share the heartbreaking experiences that have touched the lives of both Birthmother's and the babies that they were forced to give up.  It's an incredible story being told in a novel.
Adoption has greatly impacted my life so whether I am sharing an excerpt from my book or blogging, the book and my life are like two parallel lines that flow in its own path but eventually get off-course and intersect.


  1. I wish you luck with your book. It might even be therapeutic for you.

    Have a nice weekend.

  2. Thank you! You have a wonderful rest of your weekend.
