…beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!
Kelle is a blogger, an author, a photographer and a mother to an adorable special needs daughter.
She also has stepsons and an older daughter as well as another on the way!
She has a big heart and is very honest in this book.
She takes you through a very personal journey of giving birth to a daughter with down syndrome and the first year with it’s up and downs.
I don’t think you can miss reading this one!
You will cry and feel right along with Kelle.
In the end she realizes that everything that happened was less about accepting her child’s diagnosis and more about accepting and growing herself.
She ends her book with a reference to The Tale Of The Velveteen Rabbit.
The rabbit confuses being real with being flashy and new.
The wise old skin horse tells the rabbit that being real is something that happens to you when you are loved.
Being real sometimes hurts and you might not look new anymore.
But being real also makes you not afraid of being hurt so you are able to love on a deeper level.
So Kelle’s journey is really a journey we all must take regardless of our life circumstances…
growing bigger hearts and embracing compassion and understanding.
