LB Johnsonabout this book: From the #1 Amazon Best Selling Author of "The Book of Barkley - Love and Life Through the Eyes of a Labrador Retriever". Saving Grace is part memoir, part journal. The author takes us on a journey through adoption but from the eyes of someone who was not only adopted as an infant but who faced that same terrible choice as a teen, finding herself pregnant during her first year in college and abandoned at the news.
With her family fractured by a death and her beloved brother in the military, she made the best decision she could, giving her child up and walking away. But she didn't truly walk away, as her child was with her in thought and heart for the next 18 years.
With reflection and humor, for both good and bad choices, she chronicles the memories she hoped to share with her daughter. There was adventures as a jet pilot, living on the edge of a knife, because fear was familiar. There was the courage to break free from a painful past and finding joy again, as her family is rebuilt and she lets the safety of love and trust back into her life. There is dog hair, as she and her new husband take on a foster dog late in life.
Saving grace is more than a simple adoption story - it's the journey we all take to those souls both two and four-legged, that lead us gently back to ourselves.
