“The overall aim of this book is to give comfort, confidence and support to parents and families of newly diagnosed CF babies. It reminds families who might be overwhelmed with worry for their newly diagnosed baby , of the many wonderful talents, dreams and gifts that their children have to offer and will achieve. These babies are resilient, determined, happy, mischievous and marvellous bundles of joy, just like their peers”
