In Bella's Gift, Rick and Karen Santorum share the inspiring story of life with their special needs youngest child, Isabella Maria. She was born with a rare genetic condition called Trisomy 18. Faced with the bleak statistic that only 10 percent of children with Trisomy 18 are born alive, and 90 percent of those children do not make it to their first birthday, doctors told the family to prepare for Bella's death. Instead, they chose to celebrate her life.
Over the next five miraculous years, the Santorum family adjusted to life with a special needs girl - and watched her transform the lives of everyone around her. In many days of sickness and joy, she became an inspiration to her community and, ultimately, to the nation. In a world that often measures worth according to usefulness, Bella's Gift is a reminder that our real value lies in our capacity to love.
