Karen Whitaker Shares Her story of Abortion, Adoption and Single Parenting in ONE WOMAN'S CHOICE
Confronted with situations some people never experience in a lifetime, Karen Whitaker found herself face to face with three of the most life changing decisions a woman can make.
Whitaker encountered many pivotal choices throughout her life, and her memoir One Woman's Choice covers her controversial experiences, including abortion, adoption, and single parenthood. Whitaker shows her emotional growth and perseverance after making the difficult decisions that shaped her life into the woman she is today.
"This is not a debate over Pro-choice or Pro-life, but an inspiring example of how a woman can overcome seemingly impossible odds," said Whitaker.
Whitaker reveals her feelings of emptiness after abortion, joy after experiencing motherhood, the challenges of single parenting, and difficulty to eventual relief after putting her child up for adoption,
"I wanted to be a voice for the many women who have hidden in secret and shame both post abortion woman and post adoption birth mothers)," Whitaker said.
Whitaker hopes to educate readers on the difference between a choice and a mistake, remaining a voice for the many women who have silenced themselves in shame or guilt.
"By bringing awareness to the psychological pain that affects so many young children, I want to help free those children of the shame that is not their burden to carry," she said.
In addition to women, she also wants to inform men through a woman's honest point of view.
"Facing the realities of abortion and adoption can empower women and establish a voice of strength that heals the heart and restores faith," said Whitaker.
