Format: Paperback
'Year of the Babies!' is heartfelt, emotion-evoking true story about a couple that had always wanted to have a family of their own. After years of struggling with childlessness and trying to adopt with little success, the couple, from Prince Edward Island, Canada, finally became the adoptive parents of three sweet little girls. The book, which is well-written, brings the reader into the lives of the couple. Though generally a positive story, Year of the Babies! does have its heart-wrenching moments as the story delves into the struggles the couple went through; miscarriage, being foster parents, the joys of adoption as well as their youngest daughter's illness. Year of the Babies! is a very straightforward story and very true to life. It's one experienced by many families in our society. Overall, this is a wonderful book that readers of real-life stories will cherish.

Amazing journey to motherhood Dec 6 2012
By L. Noujeim - Published on Amazon.com
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!
