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, if they'd been given a chance. Instead, their lives are made up of sleepless nights, mounting bills, the pitying stares of luckier prarents, and maybe worst of all, the wht-ifs. Emotionally riveting and profoundy moving, Handle With Care brings us into the heart of a family bound by an incredible burden, a desperate will to keep their ties from breaking,and, ultimately, a powerful capacity for love.
