A must read for those with(or without) children.

I'm probably years behind because the book has probably been on coffee tables for at least a year, but I finally read the book written by Gennie Calvo about her daughter who had an incurable disease.
The entire book was lyrical. Each page was lovingly written, almost as if one was reading the journal with pictures. There was no place in the book that mother or daughter played themselves to be victims, thus, the book was about being a hero and accepting God's Will. The daughter accepted what was given her and she lived out her young years not blaming God for her condition. Gennie Calvo didn't damn God for taking away this beautiful child that had so much to live for. Instead, she continued to pray for her daughter and did what she could to make her daughter's last years filled with as much love as possible.
Each of us who have children have no clue for what comes next. Some of us are lucky that the children grow up without getting caught up in drugs, DYA or DOC.....and grow up without incurable diseases and we take these blessings for granted. After you read Let Go, and Let God, you'll have a different feeling about what it's like to raise a child and spend the last years of her life travelling to and from hospitals in the states to get her well....or to do this and in the end, she dies anyway.
I am applaud Gennie's courage to write the book and pray that God continues to bless her and give her the strength to live her life without her beloved daughter.
