When going through a personal struggle, there's no better help than to receive hope from someone who once stood where you are standing now. For the single teenage girl with an unplanned pregnancy, A Bump in Life gathers story after inspiring story of brave young moms who managed to grow in grace and wisdom as an unexpected new life grew inside of them.
There's Amy, the Christian girl who could not face her parents but fainted at the abortion clinic just in time to stop the procedure from happening that day (or ever). Jayd could not raise her baby, but she was determined to bless the adoptive parents with a special dedication ceremony honoring their new family.
Tasha was two weeks old when her mom left -- and seventeen years later was pregnant with twins of her own. She broke the cycle of abandonment and is a great mom today. Taylor grew up without a father and felt a need to be validated by men. As a high school junior she became pregnant after a first date only to have the guy change his phone number and disappear but she gave birth to a baby girl that has stolen her heart.
Overflowing with encouragement, A Bump in Life will help anyone going through or connected with this situation move from feelings of loneliness, shame, and worry to the far more lasting joy that is Gods redemptive blessing of a child.
Amy Ford is president of Embrace Grace, Inc., providing emotional, practical, and spiritual support for single young girls who find themselves with an unplanned pregnancy. Once in that situation herself, she now lives with her husband and four children in Arlington, Texas.
