Tiny Blue Lines: Reclaiming Your Life, Preparing for Your Baby, and Moving Forward with Faith in an Unplanned Pregnancy
Author: Chaunie Marie Brusie
Foreword by: Helen M. Alvaré
Chaunie Brusie is the creator of the popular parenting website TinyBlueLines.com and a pro-life advocate for young mothers. Drawing from her own experience of finding herself pregnant as an unmarried college student, Brusie offers young Catholic women in similar situations the resources to thrive in their educations, careers, faith lives, and journeys as mothers.
For the millions of young women who find themselves unexpectedly pregnant each year, Tiny Blue Lines offers a map for navigating their way through the murky waters of being an early adult, single parent, and aspiring professional. Readers will find advice for answering tough questions like whether to give the child up for adoption, to marry the father, to stay in school, to pursue a career, and how to process their experience in a way that frees them to move forward.
Brusie shares her own compelling story of how she forged a new path for herself as an unmarried, pregnant college student by realizing her dreams of becoming a labor and delivery nurse, a loving, self-assured wife, and a relentless advocate for young mothers across the United States. Not only does Tiny Blue Lines help the young pregnant mother feel like she's not alone in her circumstances, but it also offers inspiration, hope, and resources to women who find themselves peering down at their own tiny blue lines.
