Every expectant parent will tell you that they don't want a perfect baby -- just a healthy one. Charlotte and Sean O'Keefe would have asked for a healthy baby too, had they been given a choice. Instead, their lives are consumed by sleepless nights, mounting bills, and the pitying stares of friends and strangers. At six-years-old, Willow is smart as a whip, on her way to becoming as pretty as her mother, funny, brave, and an unexpected source of wisdom. But everything changes after a series of events forces Charlotte and Sean to confront some serious questions. What if Charlotte should have known of Willow's illness; What if their beloved Willow had never been born; To do Willow justice, Charlotte must ask herself these questions and one more -- what constitutes a valuable life;
