These characters are so real! Their first reactions, when faced with an unexpected, unwanted obstacle, are so much like mine. But, they turn to God and the Scriptures for strength and direction. That is the only way that we can make it. Such an important lesson!
I liked hearing the story of Randy and how she worked to make her relationship work. I really liked hearing how her friends were there to support her when she realized that things were going to be different than she first thought.

A beautiful, inspiration romance, with real human dilemmas, heartbreaking decisions, and emotional growth. I loved growing relationship between Randy and the baby, who became like her own daughter. Highly recommended
