Jodi, her husband's nineteen-year-old cousin, is fresh out of rehab, pregnant, and alone. Although the two women couldn t seem more different, they forge a lifelong connection as Khaki reaches out to Jodi, encouraging her to have her baby. But as Jodi struggles to be the mother she knows her daughter deserves, she will ask Khaki the ultimate favor
Written to baby Carolina, by both her birth mother and her adoptive one, this is a story that proves that life circumstances shape us but don t define us and that families aren t born, they re made
