It was supposed to be a girls’ weekend in scenic St. George, Utah that would include shopping, trying out the local cuisine, and participating in a breast cancer fundraiser. The fact that one of the organizers of the fundraising event, a local doctor, disappeared two months ago was not supposed to be Sadie’s problem. In fact, she refuses to participate in the grassroots investigation her friend Caro, and Caro’s cousin, Tess, have put together prior to her arrival. But then she meets the ex-wife of the missing doctor. How could she not ask a few questions . . . that lead to a few more questions . . . that lead to a small town and yet even more questions. Before she knows it, Sadie is in the middle of yet another murder investigation and trying to piece together a convoluted trail of good intentions, hidden motivations, and philanthropy turned big business.

Her biological clock ticking louder each day, Sharon Simon
felt her heart sink as yet another “Mr. Wonderful” turned out to be a
frog---not the prince she was waiting for. But when the right man did come
along, their journey toward parenthood seemed more like a machete trail through
a jungle than the smooth path of her dreams. Enduring multiple failed IVFs and
the loss of their unborn twins, Sharon and her husband decided to
adopt---taking a whirlwind trip to Russia and navigating the rough waters of
international adoption red tape. Their journey ended, or rather began, when two
baby boys were placed in their arms for the long trip home.
Part love story, part adoption memoir, and all
heart, Mom at Lastis
the story of one woman’s fierce determination to become a mother. Full of
setbacks and emotionally devastating pitfalls, ultimately the journey leads her
to true love and pure joy. Mom at Last will
inspire women who find themselves on that sometimes difficult journey to
motherhood, giving hope that motherhood is possible and encouraging women to
never give up on their dreams. While every journey to motherhood is
different, Mom at Last lets
women know they are not alone in the struggle toward motherhood. (Goodreads)
Mom at Lastis a book that
documents Sharon Simons' journey at becoming a mother. Her determination
to become a mother is just remarkable and truly shows that if you really put
your heart and mind to something, you can make it happen! As a mother to
an adopted daughter, I can fully relate to Sharon's NEED (not just want) to be
a Mom. Although my story was a much easier journey to adopt, that's not
always the case. Mom at
Lastis a touching
documentary of Sharon's journey at being a mom.
Sharon had a dream to
become a mother which she was determined to follow. Her path was difficult but
ultimately successful. Born in New Jersey and living in Delaware, she is
married to her soul mate Rick and the very proud Mom to her two sons Dylan and
Sharon struggled to
become a Mom, dealing with the uncertain world of infertility including three
In Vitro Fertilizations, Tubal Pregnancy, and the Loss of a Pregnancy with twin
boys at 19 weeks. That loss only made her more determined to become a Mom.
Thankfully that dream became a reality due to International Adoption.
Sharon is inspired to
share her experiences, to offer insight, and inspire other women find their
strength to achieve their goal of becoming mothers. Her passion involves using
her journey to motherhood to educate and help women become a "Mom at
Last". Her main message is to let women everywhere know that when you
finally hold your child in your arms, no matter how that child became your
child, you will understand and appreciate your journey to motherhood.
