If you're a fan of Kelle Hampton's blog, most of this memoir will be a re-tread to you - but no less moving than the first time. The book chronicles the birth to first year of Kelle's second daughter, Nella, who has Down syndrome, and her emotional journey toward embracing the realities of that diagnosis and even finding joy in it. I think Kelle is a fantastic writer and all-around awesome person, so I enjoyed the elaboration not only of Nella's story, but also of Kelle's family background and how she met her husband. The book itself is in full color, with many of her own great photos, and looks and feels like a yearbook. I loved it.
