This book is a series of letters to the children I aborted when I was seventeen. These letters detail the events just prior to becoming pregnant by rape and the horrendous events that unfolded as a result of my decision to abort. The letters begin with my addressing them as "blobs" because that is how the professionals referred to them at the time. They evolve into my understanding the reasons why I was depressed, suicidal, involved in an abusive relationship, and estranged from my life. With the love and grace that I found in my Savior, Jesus Christ, I was able to look at the abortions honestly and come to terms with the fact that they were not blobs at all, but instead my precious children. This truth brought healing and hope in the light of God's loving kindness.
"A can't-put-down page-turner In letters of confession to her unborn babies, the author logs her maternal journey through rebellion and tragedies. Once God renders her darkest moments, transforming them by His Son's light, she uses her story as invitations to others to come taste and see His life-changing grace."

"At the age the 15 state laws allowed me to make the decision to take an innocent life. Pain, isolation and self-destructive behaviors shadowed my life after that. Reading Anna's story revealed the guilt behind the patterns in my own life as I struggled to believe the lie that the life of an unborn child holds no true value. I punished myself because somehow I knew the truth - it does. "My Name Is Mom" shares God's message of love and redemption that needs to be heard by every young girl and woman suffering from the trauma of abortion."
