Frank, courageous, and deeply moving, Natural Harmony is the memoir of an endearing little girl named Jade, who was born with Down syndrome and a congenital heart defect. Placed in foster care at birth, she was eventually reunited with her mother, who struggled against all odds to get the best for her child. While the story recounts many setbacks and disappointments, its heart is Jade herself, with all of her comical antics. Despite the formidable obstacles she faced at times, this child was able to elicit genuine, deep emotion from everyone who came into contact with her.

Readers will be enlightened by Natural Harmony's universal life themes of frustration and coping, sadness and joy, loss and lasting love--and they will be touched irrevocably by this heartfelt re-creation of Jade's unique spirit.
