I received a copy of Pray for Kaia: She is Such a Gift from the author of the book – Ryan Donovan had asked about sharing his story here on the blog and eventually did in a moving guest post about grief in ministry. I expressed my interest in his book about his precious newborn daughter’s short life and I just finished reading it tonight. The book is a collection of emails written by Ryan and his wife to friends and family members as they walked through the journey from life to death. They are incredibly moving letters and demonstrate great faith in the midst of uncertainty, hopelessness and pain. About 12 pages in was the first time my eyes filled with tears, as they did twice more before I finally caved in at the end, tears streaming down my cheeks. The book is gripping and emotionally charged, but will do great things to your faith and remind you of the Father’s love for His children. Wow.
