Be My Baby

by Amanda Whittington


What else can you offer your child, Mary? A Christian home? Financial security? A legitimate name?

They’re told this is what’s best. They have lives to go back to. Loving families. Boyfriends who are definitely going to marry them as soon as they can. And the children will be taken well care of. They’ve been promised that. But the young women aren’t so sure anymore...
