Laura Brimberry was ready to flee when she learned the man she was falling in love with had a baby on the way with his ex-girlfriend. She thought about her whole life ahead of her — so many hopes, possibilities, a promising future — and “none of it included someone else’s kid.”

“What will people think? Is it possible that we can form a meaningful life that includes a child who’s been shaped by another’s values and insights?” She began to allow her heart to be her guide to becoming a stepmother and discovered that while there might not be maps, a whole heart can show you the way.

Watch Laura reading “A Whole Heart” at the LTYM: Raleigh-Durham 2015 show  below or on the Listen To Your Mother YouTube channel.
