    Amazing book!!

    I couldn't put this book down. I gained great insights into the lives of two women who were really struggling and who made it through their trials with the help of the Savior. I hope I have become a better person by reading this book and will see others more like my Savior does.

    5 STARS

    Need lots of tissue. I cried sad, happy, joyful, compassion and grateful tears. This story touched me in so many different ways. These have not been my trials, but know a lot of people that have or had to deal with these issues.

    These characters felt so real to me. Boy did I go on a rollercoaster ride reading this book. I hope I am not the neighbor that says the wrong thing to someone and brings more pain to their table. Or that I am not the one that keeps someone away from church for a hurtful remark about being a teen mother. So many people that I know I have thought of while reading this story.

    I like what Olivia tried to do to get over her anger and disappointment, especially on Mothers Day.

    Olivia always wanted to be a mother but month after month the answer was no. People in her ward thought she had chosen to be a career nurse instead of a mother. They would say things that really hurt Olivia.

    Allison Campbell made a mistake one time and ended up being pregnant. She went right to her Bishop to talk to and get counseling. When she showed finally she heard women talking bad about her and just wanted to stay away from church because of it.

    This story is written in three parts. The first is Olivia story of what she is going through. The second is Allison's story. I cared for both Allison and Olivia and what they were going through the highs and lows of their stories.

    This book talks a lot about the love the Savior has for each of us, The Atonement, free agency. It is a very clean read.

    The pacing was good. I only put the book down to blow my nose and grab more tissue.
    I will be reading Jennifer's new book Discovering peace real soon!

    I was given this book by the Author for the purpose of reviewing it. This is my own opinion.

    I thought overall, Delivering Hope was a great book to show all

    I thought overall, Delivering Hope was a great book to show all sides of adoption and to express the depth of feelings that each person is feeling.  It was inspiring to read about the birth mother who wasn't just a stereotypical story.  I felt her emotions to be realistic and the situation dealt with appropriately.
    As someone who has suffered through infertility myself, I felt a bit torn about my feelings on Olivia (adopted mom) section.  I felt that her feelings were a bit stereotypical   For the average person reading this book, that is fine, but as someone who has been there, lived that, it was hard.  I wasn't emotional rather logical about the whole infertility issue.  I was frustrated because I couldn't find out WHY my body wasn't doing was it was supposed to.  What every other person could do without effort.  I was not bawling at church when babies cried, or yelling at friends for being pregnant.  I was thrilled for them, and jealous of the ease that it came to them, but it wasn't heartbreaking for me.  Things were working as they were supposed to.
    In terms of adoption, I have always had a very open mind about it.  As a child I always thought it would be an option to adopt a child.  I remember asking my best friend in college (who was adopted along with her 3 other siblings) if she would ever adopt a child.  I was shocked when she responded "I wouldn't want to take a baby from another mother who was unable to physically have one herself".  I had never thought if it that way.  So while I was very open to adoption, and had zero doubts as to whether I would feel any differently towards that child than I would a biological child, my husband and I agreed that if it came to IVF or adoption, we would spend the money and do IVF because that literally is not an option to a lot of women. 
    While trying to conceive  I was always told that I would miss out on the bonding experience by not being pregnant myself.  While pregnant, I kept waiting for this magic moment to happen.  I will be honest, I didn't really feel a very strong connection to my child until I was home, my husband was back at work, and it was just the two of us.  His life depended on me.  He was my sole responsibility.  I then learned that it is not giving birth to a child that makes you a parent, but the raising and caring for a child that bonds you for life.
