Melissa Ohden was fourteen when she learned that she was the survivor of a botched abortion. In You Carried Me, she details for the first time her search for her biological parents and her own journey from anger and shame to faith and forgiveness.

After a decade-long search Melissa finally located her birth father and wrote to extend forgiveness, only to learn that he had died without answering her burning questions. Melissa became a mother herself in the very hospital where she was aborted. This experience transformed her attitude toward women who have had abortions, as did the miscarriage of her only son and the birth of a second daughter with complex health issues. But could anything prepare her for the day when she would finally meet her birth mother and hear her side of their story?

This intensely personal story of love and redemption illumines the powerful bond between mother and child that can overcome all odds.
