Bloom - Kelle Hampton

Bloom - Kelle Hampton (2012)

This is a sweet memoir written by blogger Kelle Hampton, who when she delivers her second daughter, is surprised to find out she has Down Syndrome.  It gives her a shock, and makes her question so much about her new daughter.  Surrounded and supported by a loving family and large group of friends, she is able to begin to love beautiful baby Nella.

The photographs taken by Kelle and her friends is stunning, and supports the story.  I was a bit taken aback by the initial  disapointment she displayed, but know that many parents must share these same apprehension that she felt. 

I devoured it in one quick read, and know that many mums and dads out there will be helped by this touching story, and that sweet Nella will have a lovely documentation of her early years.  4/5
