February 29th is a date that comes into existence just once every four years. It is also the birthday of Thais - author Anne-Dauphine Julliand's darling daughter - who died of a genetic disease. Thais lived just shy of her fourth birthday. She had a short life but good one. As this special day is about to reappear on her calendar for the first time since her daughter passed away, Anne-Dauphine struggles with how to mark this momentous occasion. She wants to live fully on this special day: Thais would have been eight years old.
Thaïs vient de fêter ses deux ans. Il lui reste quelques mois à vivre. Incapable d'ajouter des jours à la vie sa maman va ajouter de la vie aux jours.
