Summary "At age twenty-eight, Mira Ptacin discovered she was pregnant. Though it was unplanned, she soon embraced the pregnancy and became engaged to Andrew, the father. Five months later, an ultrasound revealed birth defects that would give the child no chance of survival outside the womb. Mira was given three options: terminate her pregnancy, induce early delivery, or wait and inevitably miscarry. Mira's story is woven together with the story of her mother, who emigrated from Poland (also at the age of twenty-eight) and whose adopted son, Julian died tragically. Poor Your Soul is a beautiful examination of free will, love, and the fierce bonds of family"-- Provided by publisher.
