It's Not About Him
Susie wakes up after a party knowing something isn't right. When she discovers she is pregnant but has no idea who the father is, she decides to place her baby for adoption with an infertile couple from church. Following through ends up being more challenging than she'd imagined. But she wants to do the right thing. If only Jeff would quit trying to marry her so she'll keep her baby! Why doesn't he understand? It's not about him; it's about what's best for her child. Meanwhile, a man shows up in her life that looks irritatingly familiar. Could he be the father?




Here's an excerpt of It's Not About Him

Prologue
Ever have a decision to make that was so awful you
wished it would go away? I did. But I couldn’t ignore
the problem. It had a time limit. So not making a decision
was still making one.

It was the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through.
But I learned some things from my experience. For one, I
found out there are plenty of people willing to give advice,
most of which is not at all helpful.

The thing is . . . not many people understand how hard it is
to make a decision when no matter how you choose someone
gets hurt. I’m not talking about easy stuff like what you want
to order at a restaurant. I’m talking about dishing up someone’s
future. Deciding who will take care of the most precious
gift you have ever received.

Honestly, I was so out of it I don’t remember much about
the night my life was forever changed. Yet I still had the consequences
to deal with. And I had to grow up fast.

Jeff, God bless him, tried to help me. But he made it harder
for me because it’s not about him or my dad or what anyone
else thinks is best. It was my child’s future that had to be considered,
not just what I—or they—wanted.

The pain caused by making this decision was excruciating.
But it taught me that my pain doesn’t have to define me, nor
does a mistake. I am not what I did.

In the end, what matters most is love because only love will
get you through the most impossible situations. And while that
doesn’t make everything better, it does make sense of something
that makes no sense.

In the end, all I had was God. But He was enough.

  1. Oh my, everybody's talking about this book. Now I understand why. It sounds really good. I enjoyed this theme... however it's a polemic subject... that's the reason I enjoyed it :)

    God's blessings
