From the Back Cover

She stares at the test strip, palms clammy, breathing uneven. She's never felt more alone. Tears blur her vision. Panic edges in.

An unplanned pregnancy can leave emotional wounds that take years to heal. The options are many: abortion, adoption, keeping the child. The questions are even more: How? Why? Where can you go for help? What do you do?

Deliver Me: Hope, Help, & Healing through True Stories of Unplanned Pregnancy explores each of the choices and their after-effects, highlighting the most sensitive moments women and men in unplanned pregnancies face, and how it affects grandparents, friends, and other loved ones. You'll find:
  • More than 50 intriguing true stories
  • Facts and statistics about unplanned pregnancy
  • Practical help
  • Valuable resources
Whether you're a woman currently facing an unplanned pregnancy, a man whose partner is there, a friend or family member wanting to help, you'll find hope in the stories of others who walked this road and faced the same decisions.

Is your pregnancy experience in your past? Regardless of what its outcome was, you'll find kindness, compassion, and healing. You've dealt with the pain long enough. It's time to discover your healing.

I've just read Deliver Me: Hope, Help, and Healing through True Stories of Unplanned Pregnancy by Dianne E. Butts. I have to say this truly was a book near and dear to my heart as I had an unplanned teen pregnancy myself. I could completely relate to many of the stories contained in the book and it reminded me of where I've been and how far I've come with Christ in my life. The stories in Deliver Me are compelling, emotional, and very touching.

I enjoyed reading these true stories and hope that they help Christians have compassion on women with unexpected pregnancies and help them to minister to them. I also hope it encourages Christians to help out with and get involved in their local crisis pregnancy centers, which do a wonderful and important work.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and it was one I couldn't put down. I definitely recommend it to everyone.

I received a copy of this book from BookCrash in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

This book is not just for teenagers going through unplanned pregnancies, though the cover might lead you to think otherwise. I had two unplanned pregnancies with two very different outcomes. During my first unplanned pregnancy, my fiance (who was then my boyfriend) had been pressuring me to abort. We went to Planned Parenthood and someone said to me, "It is YOUR body. Whatever you decide to do, it is your choice." Naturally, most people might have taken that as encouragement to go ahead and abort, but for me, it was encouragement to keep my child because I was totally against the alternative. Now we have a beautiful daughter who will be turning 5 next month.

My second unplanned pregnancy occurred when my IUD failed. I went to a pregnancy resource center (are they still called crisis pregnancy centers?) and the women there were so supportive. However, they were alarmed because they saw my dislodged IUD and no halo indicating a live baby.

The most important thing for a person experiencing an unplanned pregnancy is a safe and loving environment -- a place where no one is going to pressure you to make a certain decision and a place where you won't be judged. From what I read, the setting for these stories provided that kind of atmosphere. The other important component is resources! It really is amazing how many resources exist within a community -- unbeknownst to many! The stigma can be very overwhelming, especially if you've never asked for help before.

One thing I struggled with in this book is the idea of abstinence because studies have shown that abstinence only education is less effective than teaching safe sex. I believe it would be immensely helpful to teenagers to at least encourage open dialogue about sex.

Dianne captures the struggle of unplanned pregnancy and injects hope into the decision making process. The stories she has compiled, along with her narrative and suggestions, offer encouragement and solutions to counter uncertainty. Since she approaches her topic from a myriad of different perspectives, all "players" in the drama of unexpected pregnancy can find someone with whom they can relate. The light she shines on pregnancy resource centers is as important as it is timely in our convenience oriented society. Instead of offering an easy way out, these agencies come alongside families and make a stressful situation more manageable. The stories are short and sweet, and don't have to be read in any particular order. Dianne has created a valuable work that will benefit any reader.
