From the introduction:
It’s been ten years since the Fall. The Outbreak that lead to the end of society as we know it. Ten years since all resources that were once easily available became scarce. And one of the scarcest resources of all is family.
Whether it be to Infected, starvation, hopelessness, or a myriad of other causes, everyone has lost someone since the Fall. As much as these circumstances dig deep into the hearts of many, the idea of bringing another life, another mouth to feed, into this desolate life seems optimistically foolish at best and desperately dangerous at worst. However, life finds a way and the future of our new world grows with each passing day.
