This is a very special book! In 2019, I had the opportunity to help Kay Lynn Wilson with an editorial read of her manuscript Not Broken: Infertility, Adoption, and Christ's Power to Heal. It was an incredible opportunity.
In my correspondence with her, I shared this at the end of the project:
Thank you again for the wonderful chance to read it and share my thoughts. It definitely left a huge impact on me and I greatly benefited from reading your amazing story...Your book offered new insights that led to pricessless life lessons. I love when trials turn into sweet blessings!
I look forward to hearing whatever path your book ends up taking to get into the hands of readers. I know many will benefit from the beautiful story of God's love you've shared through these experiences.
This month, I have the special opportunity to help this book get into the hands of readers. Check out the wonderful gift below. This is a book that will change you!
How does it feel to experience infertility? What is it actually like to adopt? This candid tale through the author's experience with infertility and adoption, including all the devastating sorrows, as well as the most joyful conclusions, can help any woman, especially members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as they journey through their own stories of feeling broken and finding healing. If you are wondering if anyone else has similar feelings in your path of infertility or adoption, you can find comfort in the raw thoughts and emotions of this book. For those who have felt broken because of infertility or any other difficult life circumstance, this personal narrative will bring tears, smiles, and longings in your own unique journey to healing.
"I absolutely love this book! Very grateful the author would be so willing to share her story, all parts of it, the rawness and the beautiful healing and miracles to expand their family. I've talked with a lot of adoptive parents, but nothing gave me greater insight into the journey than this book. It also touches on infertility in ways that offer a richer perspective through this difficult trial. A book on loss - only to be found again - a definite read for anyone who has once felt broken."

A spectacular journey that will help you - This is a must-read!!! Every sentence of the book is well-written. With every paragraph, I can feel how Kay was feeling. As a woman with a similar story but was finally able to get pregnant with a long and hard journey that included pain and headaches this book is just beyond words can explain. I love how she shares her story with her heartbeat in it. I had times I was crying as I was reading because I could feel every pain. This is definitely going to help people in many different ways.
"I'll be honest... this book was sometimes hard to read... but I'm looking forward to reading it again. I cried more than once and felt like I was going through the experiences with the author. I felt hope, joy, disappointment, sorrow... and hope and joy all over again. I appreciated the inside view to what the adoption process is like (or may be like). It was more informative to me than most websites detailing the adoption process because of the narrative format. I think it gives a realistic view from a practical as well as an emotional standpoint. I particularly loved the way the family cared for and considered the birth mothers through each process. So beautifully written."
