Publisher's Synopsis

SPECIAL HEART chronicles young Paul Baier's brave journey through the seemingly endless maze of medical procedures and operations required to sustain his life over the past five years. Two open-heart surgeries and seven angioplasties later, five-year-old Paul's example of courage and resilience has served to transform Bret and Amy's beliefs about what matters most in life - totally reshaping their definitions of character, faith, hope, courage and love.

Facing the greatest crisis of their lives, SPECIAL HEART interweaves Paul's almost six-year medical ordeal with Bret and Amy's own journey from the depths of despair to acceptance then to hope. Told through the eyes of a loving father and master storyteller, readers will hear Paul's inspiring story from a man who just happens to be someone millions turn to for the day's news.

Although there are plenty of tears and pain to work through, at its core SPECIAL HEART is an uplifting and inspiring testament to the endurance and hope of an American family in crisis. Surviving every parent's worst nightmare, Bret and Amy emerge - just like their courageous son - scarred but not broken.
