Meant to Be
Lisa Faulkner explores how overcoming the challenges of having children on her own terms has led her on a journey to love and family. Inspirational and honest, this is the story that anyone forced to move to plan B needs to read.
When the doctors tell loving parents Max and Pip that their son’s brain tumour is growing back - robbing him of his ability to walk or talk and eventually ending his life - the devastating news presents them with an impossible choice. Do they let him die in comfort now, or embark on a difficult treatment that might prolong his life by a few more years? For the first time in their marriage, Max and Pip cannot agree on what to do. As the courts step in to make a decision, the family is torn by the heart-breaking choice that must be made and the consequences they will have to live with after their son’s death. A sensitive and thought-provoking story inspired by the author’s own experience of losing a child.
