Keston and Andrea Ott-Dahl are the authors of the much anticipated memoir, Saving Delaney, which will be available to the public in April 2016.
The Ott-Dahls will captivate you with the account of their courageous, and often outrageous journey.
It all began when Keston, and her young partner Andrea, learned that Silicon Valley executives, Liz and Erica, were desperate for a child of their own. At the time, Keston, who considers herself to be a care-free middle-aged woman, was secretly haunted by her past, as she grieved over the recent death of her mother. Meanwhile, Andrea longed to provide Liz and Erica with the child they had tried so hard to conceive. Despite Keston's recent turmoil, Andrea persuaded her to agree to the surrogacy for Liz and Erica. It was decided that Andrea would carry the child.
Little did Keston or Andrea know the influence their pasts would play when they learned something was not right with the unborn child.
This story chronicles Keston's journey to self-acceptance, as she deals with life and death decisions. In facing her own discrimination's, she is transformed from intolerant ableist to passionate activist.
Throughout the story, Keston and Andrea encounter a set of wildly entertaining characters, who, for better or worse, make the journey with them. They endure it all, from agonizing trials and tribulations, to moments of sheer, hilarious insanity. In the end, a little warrior they named Delaney Skye was born, to awaken and transform everyone's hearts.
Join the Ott-Dahls as they overcome great adversity in this uplifting account of one woman’s love for her partner, and the unborn child she carries. It is a heart warming story of redemption in the face of overwhelming odds.
