MY REVIEW
This was a very emotional read. I think anyone who has aborted a baby or adopted kids should read this book. I cried and laughed. This book is about choices and doing the right thing. It makes you think about your kids and the choices that you make everyday. It was a good story of great forgiveness. You want to reach out and pull Hannah in your world and let her know that she is wanted.  The movie comes out on DVD Sept. 11, 2012 I hope that you will check it out as well as the book.
