Publisher's Summary

Rick and Karen Santorum's inspiring story of life with Bella, their special-needs youngest child.

Four days after Rick and Karen Santorum welcomed their eighth baby into the world, they were given the devastating news that their little girl, Bella, was going to die.

The full story of life with Bella has never been told until now. This inspiring family memoir explores what it means to embrace and celebrate the life of each person and find hope even in the midst of painful challenges.

Bella's Gift is the story of how the entire family came together to love and care for Bella and how God strengthened them during the storms and blessed their family with grace, peace, and joy. Searchingly honest, faith filled, and surprisingly joyful, Bella's Gift is a loving, lived-out testimony to the truth that everyone counts, even "the least of these".

    "Should be required reading!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    One of the BEST books I’ve ever read!!! Even if you don’t have a special needs child, you will be very grateful for the Santorum’s witness of selfless love. A beautiful testimony to holy family life and the power of God’s grace, active in their lives - and our lives too, if only we allow it. Should be required reading in all Catholic/faith-based high schools!!!


    What does Rick Santorum and Diana Batarseh bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I don’t have a lot of time to read - so I am grateful to listen to books, while driving in my car. This is the only audible book I continued to listen to, however, even after I got home!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!
