About Hope In The Heartache

“He was born blue; he was barely alive. All the air had been sucked from the room.”

Kelly Speck had planned for her newborn son, Bennett, to be placed on her bare chest for his first attempt at breastfeeding. Instead, he was whisked away to the NICU. It was, as Speck writes, “the kickoff of a nightmare journey.”

The doctors said the end was near for Bennett. Was there any hope?

Hope in the Heartache, Kelly Speck’s true-to-life and immaculately detailed memoir, tells of Bennett’s fight to survive and his family’s journey through grief and exhaustion in hospitals, churches, and insurance offices. The Specks never lost faith, and in their devotion to God and family, they learned what matters most: hope.
