This book was so hard for me to read. The child has the same condition my son has, so it was far too personal. But I read it when my son was one year old (he's now 14) and it gave me more hope for my son's future, than the doctors did. For anyone without personal ties, this is a great book to read because it gives you a day-to-day view of what it is like raising a severely disabled child. It is a very touching, moving and heart-breaking book.
Considering the subject matter (severely handicapped child who dies), it obviously wasn't an 'easy read', but it was an important one. We all face struggles in life, but this couple seemed to have more than their share to deal with. Their ability to not only survive, but thrive shows the power of God in our lives even when we think we are alone and forgotten. Inspirational and heartwarming.
What a heartwrenching story...for any parent to have to go through such pain for a child just should not have to be. And yet, at the same time, this is such a story of ultimate triumph.
