I like to share what I’m reading on Instagram and thought I should start sharing it on here as well (just in case you’re not on Instagram). I recently ordered paperback copies of Hayley Okines’ books. I am doing research on her genetic disease – progeria – and wanted to learn more about what life is like for a child/teen with this disease.

I’ve just started to read it but I will have to say that her capacity for love amazes me. She is someone we should strive to emulate and I plan on sharing these books with my daughters to read as well.

Have you read this? What did you think? I love reading books for research and realizing I also need it for my own heart.
