To read Heather's life story, written by her mom, and to see how they both overcame a lifetime of obstacles and hardships, was an awesome story. My daughter and I sat on the sofa and read the book together. I would read awhile aloud, and she would read awhile. We would stop and discuss what we had just read, wipe our tears, and read some more. I highly recommend this book. You will love it and you will recommend it to others.
After the breakfast, I stayed behind and got my picture with her! Out in the lobby they were giving out her new book and I read it on my plane ride home. I literally got sick to my stomach when I thought about all the times I told myself that "I can't do it." This book showed me that you can do whatever you want, within reason! Her mother never gave up, her family never gave up, Heather never gave up, and the schools that specialized in her hearing program never gave up.
Well...since the book was written by her mother and not a professional writer, of course it will be dry and choppy at times, but it was the story and the fight that made it worth reading.
Oh, and one more thing, the part that touched my heart the most is when she talks about how she learned to dance ballet as a deaf child. Wow...I get teary-eyed just thinking of it. God is such an important part of her life and you should think of that while reading it.
