I knew I was on the verge of a breakdown. Honestly, I do not know what a breakdown really is. For me at that moment, I knew I was about to physically collapse. Seeing our tiny baby girls fighting to stay alive was more than I could handle. I didn't know where to go or where to turn. I felt sick to my stomach. I started searching around the NICU . . . then I saw the nurse. She embraced me and held me as I sobbed uncontrollably on her shoulder. She understood. For a moment, I was no longer strong. Full Circle: Fulfilling the Promise offers several powerful stories within a greater story that hangs together like a novel. Readers will get inside the heart of Diane's battle with infertility and endometriosis, as well as join her on the emotional roller coaster of caring for premature twins-with one twin fighting for her life after being diagnosed with heart defects. Full Circle gives insight into the struggles mothers face, regardless of the success they have had in their careers. From the impossible goal of a clean home (like the ones in the furniture catalogs) to children who are always polite and clean, Diane offers encouragement to other mothers as she admits to being completely overwhelmed and sleep deprived. Those in similar circumstances will feel a bond and have a chuckle along the way. Diane's story comes "full circle" as her faith journey leads her through some of the most challenging circumstances a wife and mother could face. She emerges more than capable of offering help and perspective to others. Finding faith and learning how to let go and ask for God's guidance is the silver lining that all can find when they open themselves up to the possibilities. A portion of the book's proceeds will go towards helping childless couples achieve their goal of parenthood.
