Summary, etc.:
Four days after Rick and Karen Santorum welcomed their eighth baby into the world they were given the devastating news that their little girl, Bella, was going to die. Born with a rare genetic condition called Trisomy 18, or Edward's Syndrome, 90 percent don't make it to their first birthday. The Santorums choose to embrace and celebrate her life, and found hope, even in the midst of painful challenges. They explain how God strengthened them during the storms and blessed their family with grace, peace, and joy.
