A proper little gift for our little lady

A book purchased by my late wife. Purchased 2 weeks before she passed away, it arrived a week before our daughters birthday (some 3 months later). The story touches on the importance of believing, of nurturing a dream irrespective of the odds. The story holds a very special place for my daughter & I. Mamas last physical gift. Her fight to overcome her odds resonate in the story. It is up to us to nurture dreams, to foster them & to not give up. A very special story. One I would strongly recommend.
