This is a great read for anyone interested in foster care or adoption or even someone who just enjoys reading about children overcoming hardship.

A very compelling story that clearly shows the small victories that make up progress with a special needs child. The writing is not amazing and has a failry religious perspective, but I wasn't looking for amazing writing or someone with the same worldview anyway. The family is so warm and loving -what a fortunate situation for them all.
