Andrés Treviño's first year as a new dad wasn't exactly what he expected: his son Andy was in and out of hospitals for the most part of his young life. The search for a diagnosis and the special care Andy needed just to survive became the familiy's sole occupation. After narrowing down the illness to a genetic immunodeficiency disorder, the doctors informed Andrés and his wife, Paulina, that the best option for treatment was to leave friends and family in Mexico and start a new life in Boston.

Andres's down-to-earth chronicle of his ordeal is an inspiration to us all. Their extended family support, many dedicated doctors and nurses, Andrés and Paulina's beautiful marriage and their love and devotion to their dying son undoubtedly gave little Andy a fighting chance.

When a new, radical and controversial treatment option is presented to them, Andrés and Paulina face a tough decision that will ultimately determine Andy's fate and change their lives forever...

Si bien es cierto que las historias de hijos con alguna enfermedad son muy parecidas, la historia de Andy y Sofia tiene una mágia especial!! unos padres que lucharon sin descansar por encontrar un diagnóstico correcto, que buscaron entre las opciones de curar a Andy la mejor, y que a pesar del dolor y el sufrimiento vivido todos esos años fueron recompensados con un doble regalo de la vida: su hermosa hija Sofía, y la vida de Andy!!... Desde el fondo de mi corazón agradezco infinitamente este libro, esta historia y esta lección de amor que me ha enseñado tanto!! Los quiero mucho Adrés, Paulina, Andy, Sofia y Tania!! su historia es digna de terminar con un "Y vivieron felices por siempre..." gracias de verdad por su ejemplo y x compartir lo peor y lo mejor de su vida!!!

I loved reading this book! The Trevino family faced one of life's true horrors; and, they never let it beat them into submission. They found the strength to fight; and, against all odds, they found a way to cure their son! My eyes were misty every time I opened the book. Throughout reading the story, I could feel the pain and stress that Andres and Paulina (and Andy) were living through; but, somehow, it was conveyed with an uplifting and often humorous voice. One would only hope to be able to stand for one's kids the way the Trevinos did. It is a testament to the power of a Parent's love. I can't wait to read it again.

This book shows the depth of a parent's love for their child. It brings awareness to the incredible struggle that children with immune deficiencies face. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend this book!
