When Jennifer's water broke at only eighteen weeks of pregnancy, she knew her baby was going to die. As she sat in the darkness of her closet, she asked God why He would let this happen. "Have peace," was His answer.
This is a story about Ella and how God gave her peace in the middle of devastation-hope instead of grief and joy in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
Join one family on their journey from the side of a neonatal intensive care crib to the mountains of Peru, as well as many detours between and beyond. Theirs is a journey of faith, as they learn to trust the One who cares about our pain and answers our heart's deepest questions-not always in the way we'd expect, but in ways more beautiful than could ever be foreseen.

WOW! I love, love, love this book! God is so awesome. I truly wish to seek God with all my heart as Jennifer and Calvin did and continue to do. I don't know if I could have held it together like they did through all their trials. I had to stop reading about 1/3 of the way through and take a break. My heart was so heavy for everything this lovely family was going through. I too am a mother of two young girls, and my heart seemed to break for Jennifer. It would have been so easy to end the suffering. She sacrificed so much to believe what God had promised her! I absolutely loved the detail. I am a detail person, and it was so awesome to hear every little detail. Jen poured out her heart on these pages and shared emotions of herself and her husband with honesty and beauty. Men and women -- THIS IS A MUST READ! I enjoyed it thoroughly!! May God continue to bless and keep her family always!!
This book tells the story of a baby who should not have survived in the womb for 12 weeks without amniotic fluid. God is far bigger than we can even imagine. If you want to be inspired and encouraged to trust Him, read this book.
