St Patrick's Day 2002: While millions around the world were celebrating and "wearing the green", Rebecca Rose was struggling just to take a breath. Born unexpectedly early to her American expatriate family in Gloucester England, she was fighting for her life amid the organised chaos of the neonatal intensive care unit. Doctors said that at 26 weeks gestation she had little hope of survival yet she beat all the odds to come home 93 days later. This is her story. This uplifting and inspiring blog turned blook will touch your heart as you follow the daily journal written by the family to share their daughter's fragile life with grandparents, friends and relatives on four continents and ten states. Laugh out loud, shed a few tears and come along as an ordinary family makes an extraordinary journey of hope. See www.rebeccarose.info for more info.
