Synopsis

A moving and inspirational account of a mother's journey through a harrowing pregnancy and a year in the life of a very special little girl. Caroline, born at thirty-seven weeks weighing only two pounds nine ounces, defied many predictions that she would not make it to a viable birth weight, but she did - against all odds. These odds not only included physical growth retardation but her parents taking the lonely road to Britain for what could have been the end of her life. From a positive pregnancy test through to life in the neonatal unit to Caroline's first Christmas, this is ultimately a positive and uplifting story, told by Caroline's mother describing her experiences and sharing her deepest hopes and fears when her life was turned upside down. The message is one of absolute hope and defiance of the odds that threaten us with defeat on life's journey.
