This is the story of a little girl who modern medicine said would not live to be born, but with the aid of an unexpected miracle survived against incredible odds. It is the story of how, after she managed to struggle into life, she was confronted by more deadly threats, and how again she miraculously survived as dead body tissues inside her functioned for two years, confounding the best medical knowledge attending her. It is also the story of how a family dealt with tragedy, with the daily presence of impending death, and the guilt being a recipient of miracles can bring with it. This is a testament of life’s greatest mysteries, of the simple joy of being alive, and how one retarded little girl can bring profound insight into the deepest questions of life. It is a journey of discovery, of the glory of miracles in everyday life, and an exploration of the wonderful things we take for granted every day. God gave Lori life, and He gave her life by the incredible intervention of a series of miracles

Not anymore at least.
I read Lori's Miracle and was impressed by the telling of a story that seemed to be about a family with a child who had medical problem after medical problem and how they were able to cope with it all. But I learned towards the end of the book that this was only a custodial type part of the telling. The real miracle was in how this child had come to the be the miracle in the family's life because of the lessons they have learned from her. Lori is retarded and the lessons she has taught the family have impacted their lives more than anything they could have learned in a book or been instructed about by learned scholars. Lori teaches them what God want us all to know: to listen to each other and attend to one another. This is what I, too, learned from John White's excellent telling of Lori's Miracle. This book will move the reader to tears and give them something so profoundly simple to take away from it that I believe my life has been truly blessed because I chose to read it.
_Lori's Miracle_ by John White is the profoundly moving story about the life of a child who almost wasn't. Beginning with an ultrasound which reveals the terrifying news that his child might not live, the author takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride of a life which hangs in the balance. This story is not just a biography, it is the riveting tale of a struggle for the right of a physically and mentaly impaired child to survive. The miracle is not just that Lori survives, but that Lori's life teaches the most important of life's lessons. You will laugh, you will cry and you will feel the spark of the Divine in this book.
