Eli's Reach is the sequel to the inspiring heartwarming book, Waiting for Eli, which tells the story of a Lafayette, La., couple (Chad and Ashley Judice) and their child (Eli) who was born with a birth defect called spina bifida. Eli's Reach is the story of how this child's life has touched the hearts and influenced the thinking of many. Hearing Eli's story has brought about a keener appreciation of the value of all human life and is credited with saving several unborn babies from abortion. Additionally, the story -- as told in the first book and presented by Eli's father during numerous speaking engagements -- has rekindled the faith of many and drawn them into earnest prayer.
