Abstract:

From the Publisher: David Knol was born dangerously early and wasn't expected to live. Remarkably, he not only beat the survival odds but also went on to live a life with joy and a measure of independence and opportunity, despite his severe disabilities. From the beginning, his family viewed him as a blessing, a gift bestowed on them by God, and received him with thanks. Through inviting stories and a few memorable photographs, Faye Knol shares the lessons about love, the value of life, and the beauty of relationships that David taught those around him during his twenty-two years of life. Warmth, good humor, laughter, and passion shine through this mother's words as she tells tales of life in this inspiring family. David's story is a moving picture of how one person-despite great obstacles-can profoundly shape a family and a community in a positive way.
