September 11, 2001, will forever be etched into our memories as a day of tragedy and despair. Yet, in spite of the fact that so many lives were lost in an instant, there is hope for our future. It lives in the innocence and beauty of newborn babies; proof that life is a circle and that hope always exists, even in the direst of circumstances.

In this delightful book, Christine Pisera Naman, whose son Trevor was born on that fateful day, has gathered together striking black-and-white photos of her child and forty-nine other babies who share the same birthday. Gathered from each of the fifty states in the union, these shining faces give hope to our nation as its citizens reflect on the anniversary of September 11.

With simple eloquence, the author shares two wishes that she has for each little one, such as:

  • I hope that you find good in all people.
  • I hope you catch snowflakes on your tongue.
  • I hope you always have more than you need and share your plenty.
  • I hope you are someone's dream come true.

Through the smiling photos of these precious babies, readers will remember that, even in tragedy, there is always a ray of sunshine. With new life, there is always hope.

A portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated the Twin Towers Orphan Fund Charity.
