Anticipating the birth of a child gives parents the chance to dream about their new family. When the actual birth shatters these dreams, parents experience deep, intense, and often painful feelings. The challenges of these new demands are immense; the rewards facing them are immeasurable.
This is a story of one such family. CalebÂ¡Â¯s life is trace from the separate eyes of his parents and takes he reader through the despair, fear, and joy of parenting when dreams are shattered. The honesty of feeling of the articulate young parents as they participate in their babyÂ¡Â¯s struggle to survive makes this story a haunting document of the brief life and loss of a child with special needs. Their journey transforms despair into hope and anguish into acceptance. CalebÂ¡Â¯s story continues many years later when CalebÂ¡Â¯s sister writes a beautifully touching letter to him.
The story affirms that the gift of life is measured not in length but in depth, not in the fulfillmen expectations but in the courage to face what is real.
