review 1: This book was heart warming and special. There is no way that anyone could read a book so special and not be warmed by everything that happened in the book! Matt Peterson wrote this in a way that you could not lay the book down and wanted to spend every second learning more about the family and Emily. I think that any parent who could tell this story is special and I love how they gave everything to god and counted every blessing that they had.
