* I recieved this along with Peytons "Heart Book" in the Nicu. His heart book had a list of his medications and medical terms that we were able to refer to when the doctors used that doctor talk during "rounds". It also set Peyton apart from the other NICU babies in allowing nurses to know right away that he had a Heart Defect. Apparently another NICU mother wrote this.

A New Baby to Love

All children need love, understanding and care,
someone they can count on to always be there.

But God knew some children would need more than others,
that's why He chose special mothers.

They have unique challenges right from the start,
so the Lord holds these families close to heart.

He gives them His strength and the patience to wait;
they learn that small steps bring rewards that are great.

And they come to know joys that they'd never dreamed of,
when their hearts ahve been touched by a special child's love.

I'd love to speak to you about the possibility of a book review and/or author Q&A. My email is,
