I just want to thank the Posada family for sharing their story. What a great read!

My son was born with sagittal craniosynostosis and underwent cranial vault reconstruction (which included 2 blood transfusions) at 8 months old. Prior to learning of his condition, we had never heard of craniosynostosis and were very scared.

I really enjoyed reading this and getting to know the personal life of one of my favorite Yankees and his wife. I loved that they both took turns telling their story and had little blurbs from other people put in the middle. It's such a sweet story and makes you stop for a second and think about how we take things for granted. I recommend for baseball lovers, Yankee fans or people who want children!

This couple do a tremendous amount if good through their foundation. They were so supportive and helpful when our granddaughter was born with this condition. They are an amazing couple......with a truthful and honest story of heartbreak, fear, and triumph !! They made our family's journey so much easier !!

This book was supposed to be inspiring and heart warming but it really did not do it for me. I am thrilled that their son is better, but I think it needed more personal stories about their son. Those were the parts I liked the most when they spoke about their kids and it was really all about them dealing with the illness. I expected more.

What a wonderful book! It is so refreshing to find a professional athlete that is a "good" guy and worthy of the accolades he has received. I enjoyed how he and his wife met and their undying love and devotion they have for each other. Great book!!

As someone else whose son has endured multiple surgeries for craniosynostosis, I could really relate to the Posadas and their journey.

A family deals with adversity, turning it into a life lesson,helping others to educate them on craniosynostosis while offering financial and emotional support through their foundation. Heartwarming!
