Finding Sarah, Finding Me: A Birth Mother’s Story is the inspiring true account of Christine Lindsay. There are short snippets of some other adoption tales as well. Christine looks back on her life as a young and scared pregnant woman who's forced to make a heart wrenching decision that will plot the course for not only her future, but that of her unborn baby and both of their families to come. After giving up her daughter, Christine goes on to marry and have three children. Though she’s happy to be a loving wife and mother, she continues to grieve the loss of her first born. Years later, Christine is delighted to connect with her grown daughter, Sarah, but the connection is not what she’d hoped for and dreamed of all these years. Will God heal the hearts of these two women, and bring together their intertwined families?

Christine Lindsay shares her story with warmth, vivid candor, and a touch of humor, not holding back when it comes to the torrent of emotions that nearly consumed her. Readers will feel like they are on this emotional roller coaster of faith, failure and forgiveness with her. The author battles a daily siege of doubt and regret, questioning herself and God, yet she takes solace in God’s word, digging deep, and managing the strength to go on. Finding Sarah, Finding Me: A Birth Mother’s Story is a journey of the author’s self-discovery, and after much anguish, and time, a victorious life through her faith in God. Her story goes to show that happy endings aren’t always perfect, but perfectly orchestrated by God.
