Publisher's Summary

There is us. Our Family. We will hold our precious gift and know that we are lucky....
From the outside looking in, Kelle Hampton had the perfect life: a beautiful two-year-old daughter, a loving husband, and a thriving photography career. When she learned she was pregnant with their second child, they were ecstatic. But when their new daughter was placed in her arms in the delivery room, Kelle knew instantly that something was wrong. Nella looked different than her sister, Lainey, had at birth. As her friends and family celebrated, a terrified Kelle was certain that Nella had Down syndrome - a fear her pediatrician soon confirmed. Yet gradually Kelle embraced the realization that she had been chosen to experience an extraordinary and special gift.
With lyrical prose and gorgeous photography, Bloom takes listeners on a wondrous journey through Nella's first year of life - a gripping, hilarious, and intensely poignant trip of transformation in which a mother learns that perfection comes in all different shapes.

Wonderful and inspirational

This book was a wonderful story of grief, friendship, and unconditional love. I recommend this book for any mom, dad, relative, or individual who desires to understand what compassion and support look like. And while difficult to read as an expectant mother of a down syndrome child, Kelly and Nella's story is a great encouragement and story of hope.
