    I loved the book, but a couple of things 1 Why is the title unplanned pregnancy The pregnancy was well thought out and planned 2 Why does the summary review mention entering a dark, criminal world, other than her being in jail at the end Speaking of this, HOW could the story possibly end like this The story is beautiful, thought provoking and genuine I ve fallen in love with Elizabeth and her babies, and I m anxious to know what happens to them.I would ha...
