It is daunting to think of how the family managed through all the difficulties, but what comes through is that with love and faith anything is possible. The world would have been a much poorer place without the Stepaneks . Their story is unforgettable.
It is a heart-warming, informative, educational and emotional read. Despite the awful suffering endured by Mattie, his mother's recounting of their life experience together is uplifting and surprisingly not at all depressing...I absolutely loved this book and would encourage EVERYONE to read it. It appeals on so many levels.
