Seven years old with a good family and a bright future ahead, Chad Thomas suffers a devastating injury, sending shock waves through his circle of family and friends. Less than two years later, these good people face tragedy, which offers a level of pain they would not have thought possible. Enduring myriad hospitalizations and forty surgeries in thirteen years, Chad and his family were sustained by love given so freely, by one doctor who refused to give up hope, by a late night visitor who promised them everything would be all right, and God the Father Who never left them, not even for a moment. With her first book, Sherri Prestwood realizes the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. At seventy, this columnist, Bible study teacher, and church organist counts her family as her happiest accomplishment. Sherri is widowed, the mother of eight, grandmother of twenty-three, great-grandmother of five, and in-law to another half dozen. She says holiday dinners at her house are pure joy. Her home is in middle Georgia.
