From the Back Cover
"Uh-oh. We've got a problem here. I'm hearing a significant murmur." Just thirteen days after giving birth, Laura's life was changed forever by those words from the pediatrician.
This is the raw and honest recount of Laura's unexpected journey into the world of parenting a medically fragile, special-needs child. Will her marriage survive? What about her relationship with her older daughter who presents challenges of her own? Will Laura keep her sanity? What part will Laura's stepbrother, Daniel, play in the events to unfold? And how does a cow angel fit into this dramatic journey?
