What a wonderful gift to give a child, the story of their entrance to the world knowing she is loved and cherished. This book strenghtens the argument that you do not need to be biologically linked to nurture and love a baby, child, in fact I believe some people are born to be a parent, some are not. Wether you are a sole parent, heterosexual couple or homosexual, the longing to be a parent is undeniable. I cried for Vanessa when she struggled to carry a pregnancy but Grace was an alternative that I believe had already been written. Absolutely loved this book and so admire Vanessa McGrady.
