"Three mothers facing impossible choices learn what makes a family, and discover just how far they'll go to protect the ones they love. What makes a family? Gail and Jon Durbin moved to the Chicago suburbs to set up house as soon as Gail got pregnant. But then she miscarried--once, twice, three times. Determined to expand their family, the Durbins turn to adoption. When several adoptions fall through, Gail's desire for a child overwhelms her. Carli is a pregnant teenager from a blue-collar town nearby, with dreams of going to college and getting out of her mother's home. When she makes the gut-wrenching decision to give her baby up for adoption, she chooses the Durbins. But Carli's mother, Marla, has other plans for her grandbaby. In Other People's Children, three mothers make excruciating choices to protect their families and their dreams--choices that put them at decided odds against one another. You will root for each one of them and wonder just how far you'd go in the same situation."--Amazon.
