Aug 21, 2009"Amazing story!" This book was amazing. It was hard to put down. This book is for everyone but especially for those people who feel they have a tough life. All you have to do is read about how Buffy held her son for the first time and you will be grateful for your easy life. You will be inspired. This family went through the single most difficult situation a parent can go through and came out strong. Excellent writing! She explained the situations in such detail that you felt what she was going through. Not a day goes by that I don't think about Tristan, the miracle baby, and the angel's kiss...

May 30, 2009"Awesome read!" This book is absolutely heart wrenching. From the first page I found it impossible to put down and ended up reading it completely in one sitting. I found myself sobbing because the author's pain felt so real yet by the end I was crying tears of happiness. The fact that this book is a true story about her experience is amazing! I have never heard of anyone actually having cancer while still in the womb yet that is actually what happened during her prgnancy with her son. I felt like I was reading fiction because of the style of writing yet I was constantly reminded of the truth of what actually happened. I give the author a tremendous amount of credit for her honesty and the fact that she didn't sugar coat her feelings to be politically correct. I have never been in her shoes but I am sure she isn't the only person to feel the way she did. This book is such an amazing account of a mother's love for her child and how much she is willing to sacrifice of herself... More > for her family. It is the type of book that will stick with me for a long time! Anyone who reads this book and doesn't give it a great review doesn't know what they are talking about and anyone who decides not to read this book doesn't know what they are missing!< Less

What the author and her family went through was just unbelieveable,you can tell the author wrote this book with her heart and soul. Not only is it a story of a child born with cancer ,its about a mothers love and determination to fight for her son even when things seemed hopeless. I read the whole book in one day,not only was this book heart wrenching but it was inspiring,I could not put it down. Everyone should buy this book to help raise awareness for this type of cancer.
Apr 1, 2009"Angel's Kiss Embracing Life of a Child Born with Cancer" I could hardly put the book down. My 25 year old daughter is a childhood cancer survivor, now pregnant with her first child and a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse. Buffy has put into words all the emotions I have felt as a parent in these circumstances. This is a must read book for families going through either childhood cancer, chronic childhood illness of any kind and parents who have experienced their premature newborn in a NICU setting. thank you buffy!!
