Description

When Amy Kuebelbeck was told that the child she was carrying had a fatal heart condition, she and her husband were faced with an impossible decision: to give their baby a chance at life--and with it, enormous pain and suffering--or to let their baby die naturally, most likely just a few weeks after birth. The unforgettable journey that ensued would change not only their lives, but also the lives of everyone who came in contact with them, from family and friends to healthcare workers and complete strangers.
Written with beauty, grace, and undeniable honesty, Waiting with Gabriel is ultimately a story about what it means to cherish life in the midst of letting go.
