My Child, My Gift is PHENOMENAL. I read it in one day and cried all the way through, but it was so inspiring.

I personally know people who will benefit tremendously from My Child, My Gift. It carries a message that helps provide comfort, guidance and even "permission" to a world of hurting people who desperately need to know that it's OK to move in a positive direction when experiencing the pain and confusion of a prenatal diagnosis. I believe this book will not only save and prolong lives, but will help people go through a superior, healthier, more "whole" process when they are faced with a prenatal diagnosis.

Madeline Pecora Nugent has done an incredible job and so have the parents who shared their sorrow, love and expertise in an effort to assure others that they are not alone and that they CAN go through such an experience in a way that honors not only God but also their child, their families and themselves. They teach us that pressing on is bearable and even preferable. I'm in awe.

My Child, My Gift would be a great book to give to parents, doctors, family members, co-workers, crisis pregnancy centers, perinatal hospices, etc.--anyone who deals with moms and dads who need TLC because of this issue. It is an especially useful, convenient resource for parents who could hand it out to those who are closest to them. This would be an efficient, loving and intelligent way of explaining and even validating their positive choices without actually having to personally do so.

My Child, My Gift is a blessing for those who already know what it means to truly love and for those who are learning how.

Medical science is an amazing thing. Mothers can often find out the gender of their child before it is born, but they can also find out terrible news before the baby comes into their life. "My Child, My Gift: A Positive Response to Serious Prenatal Diagnosis" is a look at these unfortunate parents who are faced with a troubling forecast for their children. Seeking to give practical advice to mothers who are considering abortion, "My Child, My Gift" is also a spiritual guide, intended to bring comfort as well as straight talk to expectant mothers who find themselves in this difficult situation. "My Child, My Gift: A Positive Response to Serious Prenatal Diagnosis" is highly recommended for community library parenting collections.

I received this book as a gift following a Trisomy 18 diagnosis of our daughter. We are now 34 weeks along and I have referred to this book time and time again. It has been a great resource of information and inspiration. I would highly recommend this for anyone who has received a diagnosis of a genetic disorder and/or wants to know how to help/support a family member or friend going through this. It is written in a positive light too and, along with "I Will Carry You" by Angie Smith, one of my treasured resources.

This book was very helpful for me to read when we got the diagnosis of my daughter's anencephaly. It was nice to know that I wasn't alone, despite how horrible I was feeling, and it was nice to read about other people who celebrated their children's short lives.
