I’ll Always Carry You: A Mother’s Story of Adoption Loss, Grief, and Healing
Linda tells her story of growing up in rural Texas, where churches outnumber schools and preachers in the Bible Belt threaten fiery damnation to sinners. Linda’s mentally ill, abusive father adds to her sense of lonely isolation, which is intensified after her mother dies from a car accident brought on by schoolmates.
In 1964, finding herself pregnant and abandoned by her baby’s father and her own father, who feigns ignorance of her plight, Linda believes she has no choice but to enter an unwed mothers’ home and allow her baby to be adopted.
For thirty-five years, she keeps her secret loss buried, until being encouraged by her raised son to search for his brother. She sets out on a life-changing journey to reconnect with both her son and never-imagined grandchildren. Along the way, the trauma and grief she’s buried explodes and demands to be faced in order to heal the broken young woman she’d left behind the wall of shame and secrecy.
