Accidentally on Purpose: A One-Night Stand, My Unplanned Parenthood, and Loving the Best Mistake I Ever Made by Mary F. Pols

I'm not sure why I picked up this book. I thought it would be mostly about single parenthood, and I wasn't sure if I would like it.

So the writer does get pregnant because of a one-night stand, and she decides to keep the baby. What surprised me was how she was very certain that she wanted the baby's father to be involved. She wanted her baby to know his father. It's a struggle to define their relationship as co-parents, but I was impressed with how the writer changes herself and how learns to get along with the father, all because she knows it would be best for their son.
