MY REVIEW OF THIS READ: I was given the opportunity by Evelyn Mann to review a copy of her memoir. The story of her son, the fatal diagnosis, the choice to choose life and the survival of her son. I can truthfully say that I don't do a lot of book reviews for memoirs, but I chose this book anyway. It is a really powerful story of how today's society wants so readily to end a life and can't see how people choose a life no matter how long or short that might be.
Evelyn tells an excellent story of her and her husband Ralph's choice to choose life for their son when he was given the diagnosed with a fatal form of Dwarfism, Thanatophoric Dwarfism, and the fight to not only give him life, but to survive. When so many wanted to give up on Samuel, Ralph and Evelyn choose not to give up and became their child's advocate even while he was still in the womb, but even after he was born too. It always shows how God was faithful in providing the right doctors that would help them fight for Samuel's life. Samuel just recently celebrated his 12th birthday. I really enjoyed this read and enjoyed the story of Ralph, Evelyn and Samuel.
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS ON THIS BLOG ABOUT THIS BOOK: Do I believe that some books are placed in your hands by God? Yes, I do and I don't believe this book was placed in my hands by accident. I truly believe that it was placed in my hands by God. You see when Evelyn contacted me about reviewing her memoir she knew nothing about me. I am very short for my age (I have Short Stature) and am only 4'7". So, when a book is placed in your hands and you can relate so much to it and to the person that wrote it. Think of the book as a Divine Appointment that you needed just then and encourage you in your life and the struggles that you have gone through in life.
