I read this book shortly after my own daughter was born extremely premature and hospitalized for three months, though inside the U.S. This book is a poignant, honest, and self-deprecating account of the vast emotional experience of the parents of a high-risk infant, and an interesting look at how neonatal intensive care is provided in another developed nation. Ann has an absolutely beautiful and touching passage about nurses in this book that I now send to my favorite nurses during nursing appreciation week. A must-read for any former NICU mom who is trying to make sense of her own experience.
