Jennifer Degl started a journal the night her baby was born. Five months later, instead of writing in her journal, she read every page. That’s when she knew she had to tell this story. Her reasons for writing her book "From Hope to Joy" are fourfold:
So her daughter will always know how strong she is.
So her sons will eventually understand their little sister's story.
So families faced with a complicated pregnancy may have hope.
So all those who love a micro preemie know that even the tiniest human beings can survive – and thrive.
In her memoir, Jennifer recounts the struggles and triumphs of her journey: from the decision to have another child, to the birth of her micro preemie at twenty-three weeks, and this tiny girl’s fight to survive.
