    Another Read-It...
    I liked this book!
  • Sherri A. (Westbrook, CT)
    interesting...sort of
    This sounded so fascinating--as the mother of a child who spent many months in the NICU some years ago and was born with a birth defect, I felt this would hit me close to the heart.
    It didn't.
    Parts were interesting, but the majority went achingly took me 4 times as long as it should have, but I didn't want to give up on it. i had hope.
    Things move incredibility fast with a severely ill child, or they can move day by day quite slow or backwards. this felt like it moved just enough to fill a book.
  • Sherrill B. (Columbia City, IN)
    Heather is a parent with a passion for her child from the moment she was born. There are many ways a family can be built, not necessarily by marriage. Brian, the father, didn't want to marry, but he soon became attached to the baby too. The baby had a lot of health problems, but both parents were there for her, and they lived happily ever after without getting married.
