AS A FIRST TIME AUTHOR I HAD THE WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE MY SON’S BIRTH STORY WITH THE WORLD IN MY BOOK:

JACOB’S JOURNAL – MY JOURNEY HOME

WHEN I FIRST LEARNED THAT MY SON WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A CONGENITAL HEART DEFECT (TETRALOGY OF FALLOT) WHEN I WAS FOUR MONTHS PREGNANT, I WAS UPSET AND NERVOUS. IT SOUNDED SCARY AND ALL I COULD THINK ABOUT WAS THAT HE WOULD HAVE A SCARE ON HIS CHEST. SO I KNEW THAT I WANTED TO DOCUMENT EVERYTHING. WE WERE GIVEN A LOT OF INFORMATION AND STATISTICS THAT SCARED US.

BEING A FIRST-TIME MOM AND KNOWING THAT THERE WAS GOING TO BE A LOT OF MEDICAL INFORMATION TOLD TO US, I DECIDED I WANTED TO KEEP A JOURNAL.

SO I KEPT A JOURNAL, DOCUMENTING ALL THE DIFFERENT PROCEDURES, MEDICINES AND DAY-BY-DAY EVENTS THAT LED UP TO MY SON’S FIRST SURGERY AT 16 DAYS OLD.

AFTER WE GOT HOME AND A WHOLE NEW ROUTINE OF THERAPIES AND DOCTOR VISITS TOOK PLACE I STILL KEPT MY JOURNAL, WELL AS BEST I COULD.SO I DECIDED I WANTED TO WRITE A BOOK TO SHARE OUR STORY WITH OTHER PARENTS WHO WERE GIVEN THE NEWS THAT THEIR CHILD WILL HAVE A DISABILITY.

THIS STORY IS UNIQUE IN THE WAY I WROTE IT, SINCE I CHOSE TO WRITE IT AS IF MY SON WAS TELLING THE STORY. THIS STORY WILL TAKE YOU ON AN INCREDIBLE FAITH-FILLED JOURNEY AS A FAMILY ENTERS THE WORLD OF HAVING A CHILD WITH SPECIAL NEEDS.

THE BOOK IS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON FOR $16.95.
