Make It Morning by Jodi Bainter

On Good Friday 2004, an unthinkable accident forced Brett and Jodi to make a decision no parent should ever face. When Brett decided to mow the lawn that afternoon, he had no idea it would change their lives forever.

In this true, gripping story, Jodi takes you back to the day when their three-year old son was accidentally backed over by a riding lawnmower. She shares intimate details about overcoming grief, the unbelievable guilt of a father, and how she and Brett fought to hold their marriage together. Ultimately, young Jake's will is unrelenting, when faced with a decision beyond his comprehension.

This story is filled with hope, sadness, laughter, pain and countless sleepless nights, as Jodi, Brett and Jake desperately try to find healing for their family. In the dark of night, Jake asks his mother to "make it morning," so that they can begin anew. You will be inspired by their steadfast approach to managing their struggles. And their realization that life does not always take the path you had hoped, but if you embrace the unexpected turns, you may land somewhere more beautiful than you ever dreamed.

Jodi Bainter started sharing her family's story through speaking engagements in 2006. In 2011, she co-founded the A3 Foundation, Amputees Active Again a nonprofit organization to provide prosthetics and resources to amputees. Jodi is a graduate of Central Michigan University and has enjoyed a great career for the last 14 years at the Walt Disney Company. Jodi, Brett and Jake live in Orlando, Florida.
