Kelle Hampton has a beautiful life. She shares a strong marriage with the man of her dreams, is a step-mother to two wonderful boys and mother a happy, healthy two year old Lainey, and eagerly anticipates the birth of her second girl, Nella, to complete the picture of a perfect family. But although we always wish for perfection, we seldom get what we want. Kelle is shocked at Nella's birth to find that her perfect little girl has Down syndrome. Bloom is an inspiring story about how life's curve balls can actually make us stronger and happier than we ever thought possible. Complete with color family pictures, Bloom shows how a family's love can overcome any obstacles and beauty often comes from the most unexpected of places.
