Michelle Thorne shares her story with the congregation of City Church in Charlotte, NC on February 26, 2012. A powerful, personal and moving account as outlined in her new book, “Delivered: My Harrowing Journey as a Birthmother”
Birthmothers are the forgotten, or perhaps hidden, piece in the beautiful triptych of adoption.
Based on a true story, DELIVERED sheds light on adoption, from the perspective of the birthmother. This personal account tells the story of Michelle, who gets pregnant and watches as her world implodes. Realizing she is alone, she enters a maternity home and makes the difficult choice to give her child up for adoption. As her pregnancy comes to term and the adoption proceeds, Michelle's heart is awakened to who she is and what she believes, while redemption begins to infiltrate her life in unexpected ways.
Raw and revealing, DELIVERED gives a voice to an otherwise silent population who call themselves birthmothers and inspires others to consider that the giving of life to one has a ripple effect, bringing life to many.
