Great story. I think it was the epilogue that makes it seem real. Good job showing a difficult decision in any young mothers life.

Yes! And I like how your title ties in to your ending. My husband is adopted. He could very easily have been aborted too back in the late 60's. I thank God for stories like yours that let people know there are MUCH better options then those the world offers! Great job!
