Human Organ trafficking

 About Human Trafficking and Organ Donation

 The story is fiction, but the facts are real. There aren’t enough replacement organs available for those who face life-threatening crises. Signing your name on your driver’s license indicating you wish to donate your organs is a good start. To actively participate in the National Donor Registry, you have to sign up. These sites provide more information.

Use legitimate sites, always do your research, don’t give money if you’re not absolutely sure you’re giving to the organization you intend to receive your gift.

Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. Psalm 139:16 (ESV)

When you are loved, you have everything to lose… 

Lily Masters was born with a deformity that shaped her life. When she, white and rural-raised, and Cam Taylor, a biracial army medic and literary professor who left his work under a cloud of suspicion, meet, fall in love, and get engaged, Lily decides it’s time to take control of her body in order to feel whole. She schedules plastic reconstructive surgery in Texas and leaves Cam and her nephew Kenny, also of mixed heritage, who they’re planning to adopt, back home in Wisconsin to wait.
