    Madison's story, an intense journey of a lifetime. Madison's, lifetime here on earth, eloquently written in, A Balloon in the Snowstorm. Each page brings forth the dramatic day to day roller coaster ride, Eric and Sonja, went on in the struggle for survival of their beautiful daughter, Madison. I'm greatful for the privilege of having read and reread this true story. You will come away with greater empathy and understanding of being a parent of an angel gradually slipping away from your earthly grasp.
