Often we hear expecting parents say they just want their baby to be healthy. Whether itâ€™s a boy or girl is irrelevant, etc. The Oâ€™Keefeâ€™s wished for a healthy child too, but werenâ€™t given that choice. Willow, their youngest daughter, was born with OI, osteogenesis imperfecta, a hereditary disease characterized by abnormally brittle, easily fractured bones. This meant a lot of worrying, bills, and uncomfortable moments with â€˜luckierâ€™ parents and kids.
What if they had known earlier about the illness? What if Willow hadnâ€™t been born? Life brings them to face these questions as they pursue a wrongful birth lawsuit against their OB/GYN, claiming she should have counseled, at the very least, the option of abortion. Many controversial aspects are discussed, while at the same time, a family with incredible burdens thrust upon them, finds a way to love and protect one another. Check catalog for availability.
