Review: "You Carried Me"
The mere word gets peoples’ backs up for one view or another.
Melissa Ohden’s memoir, You Carried Me, is her story – a heart-story of discovery leading to a commitment to God and speaking boldly against abortion. You see, Melissa is a failed abortion – and this is her story of being adopted, growing up, learning the truth, and seeking out her birth families, while she began a family of her own.
If you have had an abortion, or if you’re thinking about it, if you have had a child, or a miscarriage, if you wonder about birth and whether abortion really affects anyone, this is a powerful memoir to help you think and cry, forgive and tak a stand.
This would be a wonderful resource to share with anyone, but especially for junior high and middle school kids who are just thinking about what they might pursue sexually and what they believe about what that means and their responsibility in what they pursue.
A wonderful history and resource.
