it was amazing

This is the true-life account of Julie and her daughter Samantha, who was born with several heart conditions. As you journey through the book with Julie you will feel every emotion possible: a mother's joy at the birth of a beautiful child, her anxiety when she realizes how delicate her little girl's body is, and the horror of watching her daughter become confined to a bed; twisted and unable to communicate.

How does a parent cope with the death of a child? What if her child died not once, but twice? As Julie says in her introduction, "Many will not want to read on..." but I suggest that you do. A powerful book!
