Almost Daddy: A Men’s Guide to Healing After Abortion
A Men's Guide to Healing After Abortion
Almost Daddy: A Men’s Guide to Healing After Abortion takes the time-tested principles of the 12 Steps and applies them to Post Abortion Recovery. Each chapter talks through one of the steps and ends with a related testimony from a post-abortive man.
This guide is not meant to be the beginning to end of a recovery journey. It is, rather, a tool for the tool kit, a piece of the puzzle and a step along the path to restoration.
The story of Ben in "Almost Daddy" is an odyssey on many levels. Through a character many men (and women) can relate to in one aspect or another, Ben's journey takes us through the pain of a young life. Pain from the "what if's" that haunt us, to failed relationship woes, to betrayal, and the pain of the all-too-common uncharted drifting through a life without true purpose or meaning causes.
But the pain is a crucible -- Ben discovers love, life, and purpose in his life. And especially -- my biggest takeaway -- how to forgive yourself.
Greg captures the heart and mind of the man who becomes a father, only to find himself with empty arms. As a society, we make men feel that they have no voice in the matter of abortion. Walking this journey of pain and heartbreak that turns into healing with purpose is an option for every man with abortion in his past. Greg does a wonderful job of drawing us into the process of recovery and finding peace. I would hand this book to any man who confesses his loss. I would invite them to seek healing, and this could be the very tool to open a walled-up heart that fears the reality of the pain. Thanks, Greg, for allowing your story to be one that unlocks the path to healing!
