I have been so excited about this book and having the opportunity to read it over the past four days, I can say that it did not disappoint. I very much enjoyed reading about the lives of Dr. Jennifer Arnold and her husband Bill Klein - and even a little about their two children, Will and Zoey.
Because I don't want to spoil it for others who may be looking forward to reading it themselves, I'll keep my review fairly general. There were very few things I disliked. There wasn't much about their current family life (only the very last chapter) but that I can understand, in terms of respecting their children's privacy. The "we didn't let our disabilities hold us back" narrative was a bit strong at times. but overall, not intrusive.
I really enjoyed the alternating POVs in each chapter, and getting to know both Jen and Bill individually. I loved learning how they adapted in different situations. I related to many of the things they shared in the book, from stories of discrimination, to surgeries as children, to even dealing with depression in college. I also loved learning a bit more about Will and Zoey and the adoption processes for both kids. It was great to read more about Jen's career, as well.
Definitely a worthwhile read. I really enjoyed it!
