A Good and Perfect Gift

I posted about a year ago about meeting Amy Julia Becker, an author and friend of Chase's pediatrician who happens to have a little girl with Down syndrome. After Chase's birth, I read through many many posts on her personal blog in order to cope with and understand what we were getting into with Chase's diagnosis.

Good and Perfect Gift, A: Faith, Expectations, and a Little Girl Named PennyNow, after much anticipation, Amy Julia has turned her personal journal entries into a book about her daughter, entitled A Good and Perfect Gift: Faith, Expectations, and a Little Girl Named Penny

The author herself describes the book, saying: "When the doctors diagnosed Penny with Down syndrome two hours after her birth, we knew that she was not the child we had expected. A Good and Perfect Gift tells the story of how we came to receive Penny as the child we had always wanted. The narrative spans the first two years of Penny's life, from the initial dark moments in the hospital to the light and laughter she brought into our family. It is a story of a remarkable little girl who surpassed expectations, and a story of a couple who experience the transformative power of love."

The book is published by Bethany House and now available on Amazon by clicking Here.
