This is an incredible book.
It was one of those that I could not put down, the tears would run freely down my face.
I was deeply moved by the beautiful story of this strong little girl and a loving family. Rick and Karen have opened up and shared the details of their daughter Bella. The book reads like a novel, but its a true story of hope of a remarkable little girl who beat the odds. Their youngest baby daughter was born with Trisomy 18. Most babies born with Trisomy 18 do not survive past a few days. "The doctors later told us that Bella-that Bella was incompatible with life. And to prepare to let go.
They share their story from their point of view.
They did not give up fighting for their baby girl, even when doctors told them to let go, they did not. They held on, they fought for her
This book is not about living with a child with special needs. It is not about a family that attempted to run for presidential office. It is about a family who has learned through various challenges and opportunities that life is precious, God given, and valued. Every life is one that should be advocated, treasured, and honored. It is a book filled with honesty, pain, love, joy, and passion.
Get yourself a copy of this book, you will not be sorry.
I was gifted this book in exchange for my honest review.
