Motherhood Unexpected is HERE

It is done. It is here.

Motherhood Unexpected is available on Amazon.

I wanted to have it available today because today is my sister Bekka's birthday. Her unique motherhood experience has inspired me so much and has taught me truly how unexpected all of our motherhoods can be. Happy Birthday Bekka! I love you.


What is this book about? I'm so glad you asked....

All Claire wants is to be a mother, but her perfectly planned birth ends with a surprise. Forced to question everything that she has ever believed, she struggles through new motherhood. How can God still be good when nothing about this is even remotely good?
Meanwhile, Claire's teenage sister Felicity goes too far with the wrong kind of guy. Faced with a life-altering decision, she can't help but wonder, "why me?"
Julie counsels her daughters as they deal with the complications of sex, disability, broken expectations, and jealousy. However, a deeply buried secret won't leave her alone, causing her to have her own doubts.
Three women face circumstances that leave them broken and desperate. Will they find peace with the unexpected before it's too late?
And what are people saying about it?
"Motherhood Unexpected is an engrossing read engaging the secular and sacred aspects of motherhood. This book will allow you to breathe a sigh of relief that you are human, and point you in the direction of God." --Gillian Marchenko, author of Sun Shine Down
"Tackling life's toughest issues, this riveting page-turner answers the questions we all ask when the unexpected happens. Eloquent and humorous, this novel will captivate readers at every level." --Patti Rice, blogger at A Perfect Lily
"Humor, grace, and wisdom in abundance are threaded throughout Motherhood Unexpected. I laughed as well as cried while reading. As someone who has experienced multiple pregnancy losses, I know that Deanna has captured the heart of a mother's longing as well as her love." --Jessica Fisher, blogger at Life as Mom.com and author of On the Road to Joyful Motherhood

Motherhood Unexpected is my very real journey through the concept "Is God good even when He gives you a child with a disability?" along with something I love-- a suspenseful story full of fun characters.

My prayer is that this book encourages many women struggling through unexpected motherhood. Looking back now, I can confidently say that my unexpected motherhood is one of the most beautiful things ever gifted to me.

Thank you for your encouragement, love, and prayers. A girl couldn't ask for a better support system.

Edit: Kindle version is now up! The Preview might still look a bit strange (it will take a few days for it to catch up to the adjustments), but the download is good. Thank you for your patience!
Like peanut butter on the fingers of a curious toddler, this post is begging to be shared.
