What is included with this book?


I learned to knit as a way to survive life. When I was broken in spirit and nothing else comforted me, I picked up needles and yarn. Through the magic of knitting, I began to express my sorrow through stitches. I spent hour after hour creating my first baby blanket borne of my sorrow. I tried to forget that my own baby would never feel the warmth of my blanket, and would never feel its luxurious softness and be kept safe from the world.My own baby would never be cradled in this yellow blanket because of me.Lila Newman was just nineteen years old when she made the decision to end her baby's life with an abortion. She had no idea this choice would haunt her for the rest of her life. As she endured the heartbreak of two miscarriages, and eventually gave birth to and raised three children, she was constantly reminded of the baby that should have been her first child.Ashamed of her abortion, she carried the weight of this secret with her through most of her life. She didn't know if she dared to believe in God. If He was real, would she have to face His judgment and wrath for what she had done? Could she dare to hope that one day she would be reunited with her baby in heaven?May your heart be moved and your faith in God renewed as you join Lila in Perfectly Knit Together.
