Fireweed is a beautiful pinkish-purple flower that takes root in the ashes after the devastation of a forest fire. If it weren't for the ashes, there would be no exquisite, fuchsia beauty. Likewise, if it weren't for my unplanned pregnancy at sixteen and the placement of my child for adoption, my very own Fireweed would not have taken root. In order to flourish I had to suffer the flames. This is the memoir of my fire and ash and this is God’s story of redemption and beauty.

Fireweed puts you in the author's shoes as a pregnant teenager that must make an important decision—walking you through the roller-coaster of emotions, heartbreak, and ultimate healing. Fireweed recounts a raw and vulnerable journey that serves as a wealth of information to help bring understanding to those supporting a biological parent pre-and-post-adoption.
