As for my role in all of this; I am the proud Nana who got to illustrate, edit, and publish this book for Collin. His story has given inspiration to others; including me. I’ve learned a lot from this little boy. My biggest learning has been the fact that life is genuinely, constantly fragile. It is true that we can’t take our time together for granted. I know Collin will be fine through the years…including times when he has to endure a surgery or procedure. He’s a survivor! And if you look into his round, hazel-green eyes, you can see that he is special. Yes, I’m the grandma, but I have seen him in action, and I truly do believe he has (and is) a gift from God.

Here’s to happy and inspiring reading!
