With Angel’s Wings


With Angel’s Wings by Stephanie A. Collins  

From the author as found on Amazon:

With Angel’s Wings is the true story of Laura, a young wife and mother of a three-year-old daughter. Her husband, Kevin, a marine, is deployed overseas, leaving Laura to give birth to their second daughter and handle the two young children on her own.

Thirteen days after the birth of her youngest, the pediatrician detects a heart murmur. That leads to just the first of multiple diagnoses for both of her daughters, sending Laura on an unexpected and emotional journey into the world of parenting medically-fragile, special needs children.

Right when Laura fears she will break under the incredible pressure, she encounters the beauty of true love, in a most unexpected and unconventional way.”

This was a truly heart wrenching story, and a painful read for me. As a registered nurse, and the mother of two children in haven and one on Earth who is special needs, I found that I could relate completely with Laura’s story. When your children are special needs children and you are trying to raise them alone, well, that is to be superhuman.

My Review:

The story is written from the mother’s point of view, and at times, there were so many introspective thoughts, I found myself skipping over them. In real life, you can’t have paragraphs of thoughts going a zillion miles an hour and answer a question from a doctor or whoever – not in real time. I suggest these areas be edited, and reduced for a much more impressive read.

I felt Laura’s pain, and I was psyching myself up to get to where one of the children passed away, but the girls lived. They lived and thrived, actually. I don’t want to give too much away…

Love overcomes all in the end… touch of mystery here for those who haven’t read this five star book!

    • Welcome Stephanie! You wrote a five star book. I never said anything in Miami, but I just kept expecting one of the girls to die, and I knew I would not have been able to handle it had that happened. I’m THRILLED like you in meeting and chatting. We do have so many commonalities. Have a lovely evening!
