Every expectant parent will tell you that they don't want a perfect baby, just a healthy one. But Charlotte and Sean O'Keefe's lives are now consumed by sleepless nights, mounting bills, the pitying stares of "luckier" parents, and maybe worst of all, the what-ifs. What if their child had been born healthy? But it's all worth it because Willow's smart as a whip, on her way to being as pretty as her mother, kind, brave, and for a five-year-old an unexpectedly deep source of wisdom. Everything changes, though, after a series of events forces Charlotte and her husband to confront the most serious what-ifs of all. What if things could have been different? 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?
