Saving Grace - has been published.

Saving Grace - A Story of Adoption has been published.  Paperback is available at Amazon. (Kindle copy in the works, and should be available in a few days).

If you liked the style of writing in The Book of Barkley you will enjoy this story. It started as a journal I wrote to my daughter after I gave her up for adoption as a teen.  It wasn't anything structured, just notes here and there of thoughts and stories of her birth as well as my life coming to age with the brother I was adopted with.  In a series of vignettes of life and memories crafted from those notes,  I hope some of you will see much of your own journey to family.This book is for my daughter, but I hope the world will enjoy it.

  3. stellaroselong - thanks! I'll let you know when the kindle is ready.

    Monkeywrangler - there's a funny story of Abby in here as well. Thanks for the support.

    Murphy - Two books in a year was a lot of work, but after losing both Barkley and my brother I wanted to put their stories to paper while the memories were fresh and before Dad passed (he's 94). I'm very glad I did so and the sales proceeds have helped a lot of animal rescue groups.
