You Carried Me in the News

  • Kathleen Davis

    Thank you for all you do for the PRO Life efforts, I am a 66 year old grandmother. My husband and I are raising our granddaughter who is now 6 1/2 . Her Mom was involved in Meth and my son is magnatized to this woman. Keep up the good fight ( as apostle Paul would say ). Thank you,

Catholic World Report: Melissa Ohden's memoir is a tribute to love and a defense of innocent life “One of the most heart-breaking twists to Melissa’s story is her discovery of the terrible circumstances surrounding her birth mother’s failed abortion attempt, but as Melissa writes about her mother: ‘We were on the same side. Through me, her story could be told.’

Melissa Ohden’s book is many things: a testament to human resilience, a message of healing and forgiveness, an insight into the extraordinary journey of a pro-life campaigner, but perhaps even more than that, it is a loving tribute to Melissa’s heroic adoptive parents and to the thousands of adoptive couples who welcome children into their lives every year.” Carried Me is a book that can be left in hospitals, in doctor’s offices, in libraries, in prisons and around the home for others to read. Anyone who finds forgiveness difficult will find strength in Melissa’s story. Seven pages of family photos included are a meditation on the wondrous mystery of life.”
