The bond between a son and his natural father should never be broken. So was it wrong for Christian to abandon his responsibilities as a father? Most people would say yes. But what if the reason was to ensure a better life for his son?

But, what Chase didn’t realize, he was only a part of an elaborate plan to ensure a good life for what he thought was his bundle of joy. Hearts are broken, trust and relationships are destroyed when the devastation of 16 years of lies and deceit finally comes to the surface.
Anger and resentment begin to set in as CJ is left with so many unanswered questions. Can he forgive the father who was never there, while still accepting the father that was always there? Will two men from two different walks of life be able to come together and raise one son?
