Product Description

In Bella's Gift, Rick and Karen Santorum share the inspiring story of life with their special needs youngest child, Isabella Maria. She was born with a rare genetic condition called Trisomy 18. Faced with the bleak statistic that only 10 percent of children with Trisomy 18 are born alive, and 90 percent of those children do not make it to their first birthday, doctors told the family to prepare for Bella's death. Instead, they chose to celebrate her life.

Over the next five miraculous years, the Santorum family adjusted to life with a special needs girl - and watched her transform the lives of everyone around her. In many days of sickness and joy, she became an inspiration to her community and, ultimately, to the nation. In a world that often measures worth according to usefulness, Bella's Gift is a reminder that our real value lies in our capacity to love.

Publisher's Description

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."
