Jerry Lawyer, a Veteran, truck driver, devoted writer and author, has completed his new book “I Am What I Am”: a gripping and potent story of forgiveness, understanding, courage and the ability to empathize. This is a story about the main character finding out the truth about her biological parents and the emotions that come with finding the truth.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Jerry Lawyer’s profound work aims to rationalize the critical assumptions of judgement.

Everyone lives their lives by what they have learned and experienced. People are all different and live different lives. Some people live uneventful, normal lives. Others have very strange lives filled with a roller coaster of events.

This is what Sally learned when she received a package one day. Sally was newly married to a wonderful husband. This is the life she had wanted for as long as she could remember. She just wanted to be normal. Sally was adopted and never knew her birth parents. She always wondered what they were like, as most adopted children do. Yes, she had a fairly happy childhood and a loving mother who raised her, but still she wondered. That is, until the package came. It changed her life forever. As the saying goes, “Be careful what you wish for; you just might get it.” In the package, Sally found what she had been looking for all her life. It was nothing like she had imagined. It was the truth of why she was abandoned at one year old and who her mother and father were.

Lawyer concludes by saying, “This story tells of why someone could abandon a child. It may not be a good reason, but maybe it’s one Sally could understand. You might not agree it was a good thing to do, but maybe you will understand, too. Understanding why people do what they do is key to understanding ourselves. Under the same circumstances, would you do the same thing? We all do things we regret. In the ’60s it was popular to go and find oneself. When we find ourselves, we may not like who or what we are. Here is a story of someone who did just that. He found out who he was and what he had to do to survive this world. Maybe it was selfish. Maybe it was the ultimate sacrifice. Who are we to judge others? His story also helped his daughter find out who she was. Maybe it will help you understand that people make terrible choices for what they think to be good reasons. After all, we are only human.”

Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase “I Am What I Am” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
