Kaci's children have craniosynostosis, a condition where the infant skull sutures (openings) fuse early and a secondary condition, chiari malformation, caused by the growing brain pushing its way down the spinal column. With 13 surgeries between the children, the Kings are often asked how they manage daily life along with the difficult diagnoses and seemingly endless trips to the operating room. Finding help did not come easily. Kaci trusted her instincts and pushed on, focusing on the children's health and leaning on sources of strength. The conditions could be fixed once they found a doctor who knew how to help. Their continued search led to Dr. Ben Carson, Chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital: an angel in disguise. The children would have suffered gravely without the treatment they so desperately needed.

As Dr. Carson states in his foreword, "In Light Will Emerge, Kaci King has provided a wonderful mechanism to gain foreknowledge of the difficulties of navigating the medical system..." There is hope even in the worst of situations, blessings when most aren't sure any exist. Life is about attitude. Kaci was taught that for every action, there is a reaction, good or bad. She shares her family's journey: how they coped; how they found their inner strength; and how not knowing what else to do, they prayed. Kaci offers a wealth of information explaining the medical conditions, websites and online support groups. Through this book, she sheds light on what helped them overcome obstacles, how they found strength during difficult times, and encourages others who may feel hopeless. Kaci shares the heartache and many blessings received throughout this journey.

Light Will Emerge enables parents and caregivers to push on to find help in a medical crisis and hopefully to help medical professionals understand their very real story.

Kaci has written a wonderfully inspiring book about their walk through the medical journey of 2 children both having Chiari Malformation and Craniosynostosis. Written to hopefully help other parents searching for answers for their sick children, it shares their hope for the future and what they have learned about life in general. I'm sure many will be grateful for such a book as this.

Kace Buchenroth King did an amazing job detailing every moment of this medical journey with her children. What her and her family went through not for one child, but two, is beyond what anyone could imagine. Her strong will and determination to not give up hope, is what saved the lives of Austin and Madi. Through her day to day details and medical research, she not only educated her readers, but enlightened us on the trials and triumphs that they overcame. This book will capture your heart and will make you more aware of craniosynostosis and the effects it has on a child.
