Good Reads: The Choices We Make by Karma Brown

Good Reads Synopsis:

Hannah and Kate became friends in the fifth grade, when Hannah hit a boy for looking up Kate's skirt with a mirror. While they've been close as sisters ever since, Hannah can't help but feel envious of the little family Kate and her husband, David, have created—complete with two perfect little girls. 

She and Ben have been trying for years to have a baby, so when they receive the news that she will likely never get pregnant, Hannah's heartbreak is overwhelming. But just as they begin to tentatively explore the other options, it's Kate's turn to do the rescuing. Not only does she offer to be Hannah's surrogate, but Kate is willing to use her own eggs to do so. 

Full of renewed hope, excitement and gratitude, these two families embark on an incredible journey toward parenthood…until a devastating tragedy puts everything these women have worked toward at risk of falling apart. Poignant and refreshingly honest, The Choices We Make is a powerful tale of two mothers, one incredible friendship and the risks we take to make our dreams come true.

My Thoughts:

God gave Karma Brown the gift of the written word and we are all blessed that she chooses to share her talent. This book was beautifully written and thought provoking. It weaves a tale of the love between two best friends, how far they'll go for each other, and how those decisions can change a friendship. The Choices We Make is centered around the current hot topic of infertility and how far couples are willing to go to fulfill the dream of having a child.  This is a real tear jerker. By the end I had big, fat tears rolling down my cheeks. This is book was pretty remarkable. A must read!
