“Finally a Mother” by Dana Corbit is a book that took on some pretty heavy topics, even in this day and age, and wove them into a beautiful book full of forgiveness, understanding and lessons learned.

Though teenage pregnancy are more tolerated in this day and age, there are still a few who feel like what the book describes. Also the subject of no one taking the blame for their own actions seems to play far to often in this day and age. Both of those issues are handled in such a way that frankly

Wow! Ms. Corbit packs a lot of emotion and story in this one. Shannon and Mark were lovable characters, especially given their complex pasts. I enjoyed reading Blake's journey too as he learned to trust his birth mother (Shannon) and finally had a stable male role model in his life. The setting and unwed mother's home really added to the overall story. Fantastic book!!

"This is an engaging story, and readers will identify with the characters. The drama and strife add to the realism. Corbit deals with the reality of teen pregnancy and reminds readers that hope is contagious (RT Book Reviews)". 4 1/2 stars

Really enjoyed this book about a woman who is a social worker to a house full of teenage moms-to-be. One day a police officer comes to the door with a teenage boy who is the son she gave up for adoption when he was born. It's a story of things not working out like you planned and forgiveness with believable characters.
