As a hit artist, producer, and songwriter the author of this book was familiar with drama. But nothing would prepare him for the drama of a rural Chinese hospital, the endless nights of raising an insomniac baby, or the uncertainty of her condition. Regie's story is one of a man and his family who overcame enormous obstacles. It is a journey that put him in the company of Angels and idols - a journey that would test not only his physical resources but also his faith.
