Is that The Waiting? I haven't heard of it but if it made you bawl I might have to check it out! What's the story line?
It's about a young 17 year old who gets raped, she was a very innocent 17 year old and didn't even know what the "act" was and called it "it". Anyhoo....she gives up her baby and for nearly 80 years waits, prays and hopes to see her again after spending just a month with "Betty Jane". The month was required of the home she was staying at to hide her condition. It was a really good book and a true story. One of the authors is the granddaughter of the woman who gave her baby up so all the facts came right from the woman herself, plus others in her life.
Oh that sounds REALLY good! I am definitely putting that on my list. Thanks!
Nope, super not going to read it!
I just saw something on tv the other day about a woman who gave up her child 73 years ago (somewhere around there) because she didn't want her child to have to work hard on the farm. She wrote letters to the adoption place all the time and when her grandson looked into his moms adoption, found all of these letters and decided to find the woman. She was in her 90's when she finally met the daughter she gave up. It killed me! I love books and stories that make us feel. Thank you for sharing Theresa!
