Publisher's Summary

Suppose you have a teacher who knows the secret of life. A teacher who can show you what it takes to live to the fullest, to love until your heart bleeds out - to have it all, and then to let it all go. Now, suppose your teacher is only five weeks old.

When the Sullivans are told their unborn child has a congenital heart defect, they have no idea where the news will lead them. Their dreams of bedtime cuddles and soft baby coos give way to the incessant beeping of hospital machinery and the sharp smell of antiseptic. With two young children in tow, the uprooted family takes an unexpected journey discovering the truth of love, sorrow, and ultimately, the gift of life.

This true story - comprised of journal entries, letters, and emails - is the legacy of one small boy's lifetime.

    "This is why audiobooks exist"

    The impact of this sad, touching, inspiring and hopeful story is greatly enhanced by Karen Luisi's tasteful, moving performance. This is a great example of why audiobooks exist as an art form.
