The Birth of Hope is a compilation of the author’s raw and personal journal entries beginning five days into the loss of her two-and-a-half year old daughter Penny and spanning the following three years. Genevieve felt compelled to write through her feelings of heartbreak and to share her discoveries of blessings, miracles, joy and peace along the way. It is her hope that others experiencing loss and tragedy feel inspired for their own healing and comforted knowing they are not alone on the complicated journey of grief. What begins as a devastating tragedy, reveals itself to be a pathway to spiritual enlightenment for Genevieve. Penny’s departure not only deeply impacted her family, but had a ripple effect on a much wider community than the family could ever have imagined.
