In Oregon, Victoria Allen and Ryan Nash are high school sweethearts. However when they are both sixteen, she becomes pregnant. She wants to keep their daughter, but pressure from their parents and knowing kids raising a kid is not smart; they accept a closed adoption. The teen couple agrees to hold their baby once before giving her up. Panicking he fails to arrive at the hospital as she gives birth to their baby. Soon afterward, her parents move with their daughter to Los Angeles.

Eighteen years later, single web designer Victoria contacts divorcee veterinarian Ryan to tell him that she joined several adoption registries hoping their daughter would find her. Six months ago, she and Kaley met and, encouraged by her widower dad, have since bonded. Now a UCLA student Kaley wants to meet her biological dad and though Victoria does not want to see him as she knows she still loves him, but she will do anything for her child.

This Family Renewal drama is a warm second chance at love (and family) tale. The key is that the players are all nice people including the adopted dad and late mom. With Native American elements (the two dads are part Native American) enhancing the engaging storyline, readers will appreciate Sheri WhiteFeather’s wonderful story.
