5 Stars Out Of 5
A Further Insight into Families Dealing with Adopt
August 1, 2012
This is the first book that I have read by Mildred Colvin and hopefully not my last! Reading more about the author, I see that Mildred has her own personal experience with adoption.
At a young age, Sarah was forced to give up her son for adoption. As it turns out that it was an open adoption, with the agreement being that at the age of eighteen, Sarah would be allowed to meet her son.
Unbeknown to Sarah, Kevin has also been informed on their son's progress by the adoptive parents. So, the same day that she gets to meet Trey, she literally bumps into Kevin.
There is pain that needs to be worked through as Sarah and Kevin are put into situations where they are put "together" again.
Sarah must also choose between following her heart and risk being hurt by Kevin or accepting a marriage proposal from the doctor, who wants to take her as his wife, and sees her as a great step-mom for his daughter.
I loved seeing how Trey related to his birth parents and adoptive parents. As shown in this book, sometimes adoption does turn out to be the best answer. Only wish that all adoptions turned out this perfect!
