The Offering

By Angela Hunt

Amanda Lisandra was an only child and always dreamed of having a big family of her own. She and her husband have one daughter and are struggling financially. It seems they will never be able to afford a home of their own or more children. Mandy finds out that she can earn quite a bit by being a gestational carrier. She wants to help earn money for her family. Being pregnant was easy for her in the past. She could earn a nice sum and help a childless couple at the same time. Just at the end of her pregnancy, tragedy rocks her world. She delivers a healthy baby but in her grief she barely even looks at the baby before surrendering him to the couple who hired her. For two years she struggles to heal emotionally. Then she receives a photo of the child she bore. The resemblance to her daughter is unbelievable. Did she give away her own biological child?
