Beautiful Jessica Aug 28, 2006
I read this wonderful, heartwarming and important book in a few short hours. Jessica Walker is my second cousin and I have seen her about every two years since she was born. I am always struck by how incredibly beautiful she is, but what is really beautiful is her family and the love they show for her. Jim may say they are just an ordinary family, but I have always found them to be Extraordinary and Exceptional. Much love to Jim, Renee and family.
The best of its kind in the last few years... Mar 28, 2006
This is a wonderful book! The best I've seen in recent years, as far as being well-written, and interesting. Unusual because it is written by the little girls' daddy.
This beautiful little girl was apparently born normal, and became profoundly mentally retarded from defective vaccinations. She is still alive, and a treasured member of her family. Special and tender are the writings at the end of the book, by her siblings, once they had grown up.
This is a loving, compassionate story of a lovely, helpless child, was a treat for me to read, from one end to the other. I wish "The Vest" had been invented when my little son Travis was alive!
I especially loved the MANY black and white photographs of little (and older) Jessica. Highly recommended by me!
