Amazing journey to motherhood Dec 6 2012
By L. Noujeim - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this simply told, heart-wrenching (and, ultimately heart-warming) story. The author's experience with miscarriage, foster children, adoption, and then cancer almost defies belief - in one scene, she says from her infant daughter's hospital room "some day I'll have to write a book about this!". I am so glad she did!
