Pregnant and single, Kalya M. Becker was luckier than many teenagers. She had the support of her family and a group of good friends to help her through her pregnancy. When she was a senior at a Catholic high school, she learned she was going to have a baby. The father, hundreds of miles away at a military base, said, "Get an abortion. It's the only answer." To Keera With Love is the dramatic story of one teen's journey from early childhood in a healthy, happy and protected home environment to the harsh reality of becoming a mother too soon. Kayla Becker and her two brothers, raised by a divorced mother, a successful regional media broadcaster, learned that a family can stick together and deal with a personal crisis productively.To Keera With Love is a story of courage and of pain many teen mothers go through while making live decisions for herself and her child.
