Only for A Season

I'm a proud cousin. My cousin Amy is now a published author. Several years ago, Amy and her husband Chris had a beautiful baby girl, only to find out soon after that little Kelsea had a serious heart defect and wasn't expected to live. They struggled, scratched, clawed, and most importantly, prayed while they put their trust in God and the medical community to save their baby girl. This book is Amy's account of that stressful but beautiful time in her life.

Please take a look. We all share love for our little ones. This book will make you appreciate what you have so much more. Congratulations Amy.

Only for a Season - The Baby in Bed no 1 by Amy Grumbling

"After almost two years of infertility, Amy Grumbling hears the words, 'You're pregnant!'
Meticulously, she keeps every doctor's appointment, eats her fruits and vegetables, exercises, and basks in a full-term, blissful pregnancy.
A most unusual labor experience arises, and within hours Amy and her husband hear the words every couple dreads, 'Your daughter has a cardiac defect.'

What if this was your reality?

Join new author Amy Grumbling on an unexpected journey into the other world that exists where babies are born. Vivid memories reveal the complicated battles that ensue for baby Kelsea's life and set the stage for the power of God to be seen clearly in response to the prayers of countless friends and family. Clinging to faith, Amy must rely on her trust in God in spite of doctors' reports that Kelsea was moments away from death, thrusting her into a spiritual battle right after giving birth.

In this powerful, beautifully-written account of a new mother struggling with every parent's nightmare, readers will be witness to the presence of God as he brings this family through a frightening time that will last Only for a Season."
You can buy this book at Barnes and Noble, or at Tate Publishing.

congrats! will definitely try to pick it up. Revisiting such a difficult time must have been heart wrenching and simultaneously cathartic.

God Bless Amy for sharing her story with the world. My prayers go out to her continued strength and resiliency after such an unimaginable loss.

Congratulations to Amy. As the mother of a premie, no stronger to the NICU, my heart aches at the thought of what she went through.
