Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"Babies are bits of stardust blown from the hand of God. Lucky the woman who knows the pangs of birth for she has held a star." --Larry Barretto

Having a baby on any day is a special experience. Having a baby on September 11, 2001, is especially unique. In the stillness of night, Christine Pisera Naman gazed lovingly at her newborn baby and wondered why he had been born on the most tragic day in modern American history. As she stroked his tiny hand, she heard herself say, "Babies come when they are supposed to come," a phrase she had been telling everyone who called that day and mentioned the auspiciousness of her son Trevor's birth date.

She said, "I began to realize my baby–and all the of the ones who joined him being born on that day–had a very special purpose. They were born to provide life, hope and goodness to a world on a day when it needed it most."

Within the pages of this book, you will find all that is good in life through the pure joy that shines through the eyes of every child. Through their innocence, trust and potential to make a positive difference, we remember what is right with the world.

About the Author

Christine Pisera Naman lives in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, with her husband and three small children. She is currently writing two other books: Caterpillar Kisses, a collection of short stories inspired by her experiences as a Kindergarten teacher, and I Still Love You Like That, a collection of stories about the love within families. Faces of Hope is her first book.

Faces of Hope is a must read for anyone searching for good on a day that is fraught with sadness. Although the world will never forget what happened on September 11, 2001, Christine Naman's book will provide you with an insight that guarantees hope for the future. I promise!
It's very difficult to realize that all of us were blessed, not only as a country, but as a people, on that unforgetable day. But we were! Faces of Hope illustrates, not once, but 50 times, just how blessed we actually were.
Read this book and buy copies for your friends, because everyone needs to be reminded, that without hope, we have no future. Thank you Christine for writing this book. You have made the world a better place!

Format: Paperback
Faces of Hope Babies Born on 9/11 is a wonderful book that brings light to our world when many stood in darkness after the terrorists attacks almost two years ago. It was written
by Christine Piersa Naman to be a message of hope to a world
that was forever changed that day. Other books have been written
about the tragedy, the stories of those who lost loved ones, how we could have avoided the tragedy, etc...I think Christine was trying to share some of the goodness left in our world with those who felt and are still feeling such sadness and loss. She mentions in her book, "With new life, there is always hope." I think Faces of Hope provides a smile, a ray of sunshine, when many are still hurting and need it most.
"A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on." -Carl Sandburg another quote from the book says it perfectly. Americans are going on, moving forward but we will never forget the courage and bravery of those who lost lives that
day. This book was to all of those people, their families and anyone needing to believe in a little goodness again! Christine Naman was able to put in words what so many of us were thinking and feeling on 9/11/2001 "What kind of world did we bring our babies into?" Her book doesn't have the answers just a little hope in the faces of 50 babies shown on the pages (50 babies out of 8,000 plus born on 9/11). The babies born that day can never replace those who lost lives; bring new hope...definitely!.. I highly recommend this book!

Format: Paperback
I didn't read this book when it was published never heard of it till the Tucson tragedy. I think this book was a reminder of how a day like 9/11 can be so unbearably sad and tragic for the lives lost and the families who have lost those they loved. Yet at the same time be a day of hope, love, joy and congrats to the mothers and family who waited 9 long months to meet the tiny new love of their lives.
My cousin was born on July 27th and 22 years later to the day she was murdered. That day for my aunt was a day that brought love and joy into her life then 22 years later that day brought grief and sadness.
Now with the tragic loss of one of those who gave someone joy and hope on 9/11, a day most all felt sadness we are reminded yet again that with the grief over the loss of the innocent someone somewhere was experiencing the love and joy that Christina's mother and family had felt the day she was born. We cant have joy without sorrow, love without sadness and hope without grief. To those who have lost my heart and prayers go out to you. I dont understand Him at times but I believe in Him, may God give us the strength we need to accept the things we cannot change.

Format: Paperback
For a day that is remembered for its horror, chaos, and fear, it is a delight to see the day honored for its "hope". These beautiful children represent the special deliveries of that day. As a teacher, I spend time discussing the impact of September 11th with my students, and I use a lot of literature written about that day. No book gets the reaction of my teenage students as does this book. Not only are the children innocent and full of hope, this book proves an important lesson to my students: Out of evil, good triumphs. This book is a very important part of my teacher library and it will continue to sit on my shelf as a reminder of the positive impact of that day.

What wonderful reading and beautiful little people, you can't help but smile as you turn each page and see each little face looking back at you. These little ones not knowing the tragedy happening around them, just knowing that they are here to be loved and blessed. And though so many lives taken, this shows so many given new life...and hope.

Following 9/11 we all need to be reminded of the joy that there is in the world and this book did it for me. FACES OF HOPE gave all of us hope along with a willingness to go on despite the darkness. I have met the author and to know her is to love her. She is the most beautiful writer and her words are so warm and touching. We are lucky to have such wonderful people speak out for all of us during such difficult times. Thank you Mrs. Naman for giving of yourself at such a trying time. All those who have read your book were happier people. You have made a real difference in this world.

Format: Paperback
I'll start this off by saying that I am a highly biased reviewer, my son is one of the children featured in Christine's book. So I have a fairly rare perspective not only on the book, but on the conflicting feelings of being the parent of a 9-11-01 baby.
Christine has captured it perfectly, The joy, the sorrow and the hope. For all of us, September 11, 2001 was a horror. Many of us knew someone who was murdered on that day. I knew a young woman whose short life ended that morning when terrorists crashed her plane into Tower 2 of the World Trade Centers. So I know the sorrow and rage of that day personally. But those of us who saw new life enter the world that day also know joy and hope as God, yet again, demonstrated His perfect love for us.
Is the book sentimental? Yes it is, but frankly, the world could use some unabashed sentimentality to replace the jaded cynicism that masquerades as intellectualism today. Sentiment is your heart's way of telling you what is REALLY important.
Faces of Hope is about Renewal. Renewal of life, renewal of hope, renewal of faith and love. I would recommend it to anyone, and especially to those still fighting to come to terms with the events of 9/11.
My son is the Massachusetts baby, Duncan, and I am proud to contribute his smiling face to this book.
