A Life Already Started
When you are faced with an unwanted pregnancy, it may feel like the walls are closing in, and you are overwhelmed with choices. Should you terminate? Should you keep the baby or adopt it out? Should you tell the father? Your parents? Where will you live and how will you deal with finances? Don’t panic. God has not left you to manage on your own.
This immensely practical book looks at all the options from a Christian perspective, starting with the realisation that the child in the womb is ‘already a life’ and that this should be the place to move forward from. A life already started also looks at how we, as God’s people, can genuinely love and support women who did not intend to become pregnant.
