This is an amazing book about the spirituality of children.  The reader is shown glimpses of heaven through the stories of terminally ill children.  Leanne Hadley is a gifted writer.  She has captured the poignant beauty and truth of what can be a painful, sad experience.  It will fill your heart with hope, lift your soul and renew your faith.  An absolute must read!

This is a book that I want to know is always in my house.  It gives hope as to where loved ones have gone.  It gives hope and defines the strength of children.  Children are special and must always be taken care of.

Thank you for this brilliant book! An honest sharing of respectful observation. The story-telling had me personally experiencing the grief and joy with the turn of each page. This book takes on questions we all keep deep within and gives us hope and assurance of a God that loves all of His children, regardless their age!
