Blogger Review:
This book is a life changer for me. I never have realized the true experience of every family who are experiencing this great challenges in life. Hopefully this book would also inspire other families who are experiencing same kind of unique challenge in their life. To be able to give them hope and light. God wouldn't give us challenges that we can't face, because He knows that we can solve every problems in our own unique ways.
