Overview

Kathryn Blasco was born April 3, 1979, with an occipital encephalocele (a cyst on top of her head which held a part of her brain) and severe microcephaly.

Overview

Kathryn Blasco was born April 3, 1979, with an occipital encephalocele (a cyst on top of her head which held a part of her brain) and severe microcephaly. Because it was infected, the doctors insisted she would not live more than a week. Her parents Barbara and Richard were devastated but determined to nurture and love their daughter until she was no longer with them. They expected, from what healthcare workers said, it would not be long. After five operations, intense therapy, high fevers, serious rectal bleeding and the collapse of the encephalocele, Kathryn had completely baffled the medical community. Although multi-handicapped, she was still alive!

When Barbara and Richard became born again believers, God showed them His plan for them and Kathryn. They began a ministry, HIM (Hearts in Motion) with direction from Joni and Friends (Joni Eareckson Tada's organization) in their community. Their ministry now reaches out to countless disabled people.

In It's a girl… but will she live? The Kathryn Blasco Story, Barb shares the miracles, lessons and encouragement she has learned from her experiences as the mother of a disabled child.

    It's A Girl!

    This is a fantastic book - of love, compassion, honesty, dealing with disability, feelings, and reality. It is about real life, real feelings, love, commitment, growing, and learning.
    I wish every parent who has a disabiled child could be given a copy. I wish the rest of us would read it to experience the honesty, anguish, and joys of this special challenge. I couldn't put it down - what a testimony to doing the right thing - taking a difficult situation - holding on to God's hand and watching the good unfold!
    Treat yourself - read it!

    Amazing new book will bless your soul

    This is the best book I've read in a long time. Even if you don't have a special needs person in your life, this book has something for everyone. It shows how one couple learned how to depend on God and trust Him. The author exposes her inner feelings about her life before and after she found Christ. My faith in miracles were revived after reading how God has used Kathryn in so many lives.

    Highly recommended

    I enjoyed reading this book. What I liked best was how the author showed how God used her life and Kathryn's--the good times and the hard times--to help others and to further His Kingdom. It details how God groomed the author and her husband to become advocates for the rights of special needs children--and in a global way!
    In addition, the book has some very insightful tips for parents of special needs children. This would be an excellent resource book to give to those parents.It will help them navigate through the emotional and practical realities of their lives.

    engaging book

    I couldn't put the book down. It was like sitting and talking directly to the author. It is an inspirational book, not just for people dealing with disability, but for anyone who is going through a trial in their life. It's interesting that the authors are donating the proceeds to an organization that helps the disabled. I highly recommend buying and reading this book.
