"In her tender and genuinely beautiful memoir, Kelle Hampton encourages us to not simply accept the unexpected circumstances of our lives, but to embrace them like the things we wished for all along." -Matthew Logelin, New York Times bestselling author of Two Kisses for Maddy
Bloom is an inspiring and heartfelt memoir that celebrates the beauty found in the unexpected, the strength of a mother's love, and, ultimately, the amazing power of perspective. The author of the popular blog Enjoying the Small Things-named The Bump's Best Special Needs Blog and The Blog You've Learned the Most From in the 2010 BlogLuxe Awards-Kelle Hampton interweaves lyrical prose and stunning four-color photography as she recounts the unforgettable story of the first year in the life of her daughter Nella, who has Down syndrome. Poignant, eye-opening, and heart-soaring, Hampton's Bloom is ultimately about embracing life and really living it.
"Bloom is one of the most emotionally stirring books I’ve ever read... This story is a reminder that perfect, when it comes to human beings, is such a relative (and irrelevant) term and that a mother’s love for her child is a powerful, eternal, unshakable force." - REE DRUMMOND, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE PIONEER WOMAN COOKS "Kelle Hampton... reminds us that life may not always look pretty or perfect, but it is always beautiful... She has indeed made of her life something 'wild and precious' and her book, like her two beautiful girls, is a bundle of joy. I finished it reluctantly and with a full heart." - CLAIRE FONTAINE, NATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF COME BACK: A MOTHER AND DAUGHTER'S JOURNEY THROUGH HELL AND BACK "In her tender and genuinely beautiful memoir, Kelle Hampton encourages us to not simply accept the unexpected circumstances of our lives, but to embrace them like the things we wished for all along." - MATTHEW LOGELIN, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF TWO KISSES FOR MADDY
