Vernon Hills, Illinois – “The Summer Called Angel-a story of hope on the journey through Prematurity” is a powerful and inspiring story about the author; Sola Olu’s experience of two pregnancies that resulted in preeclampsia and the premature births of her children.
Premature birth remains the number one killer of newborns in the United States. In fact, with approximately 1 in 8 pregnancies resulting in premature birth each year, the U.S. has one of the worst records in the world, and certainly among developed nations. The statistics are not only appalling, but surprising, and many parents are shocked, frightened and confused as they attempt to navigate the world of the neonatal intensive care unit.
After she and her husband endured this agonizing experience, not once, but twice, Olu was inspired to offer her support to others in the same situation. With equal parts information and empathy, “The Summer Called Angel” will help other women deal with the physical and emotional challenges of prematurity and preeclampsia, and learn how they can find hope and strength in the process.
“The premature experience can be very isolating. I believe my story, with all its difficulties and triumphs can help others going through the same experience,” says Olu. “It will let those parents know they are not alone.”
The memoir, which began as Sola’s journal entries, is an incredibly moving and detailed account of her thoughts and feelings at each step of her journey. Written to engage, educate and comfort, the book will prove an invaluable source of information and inspiration to families who are facing premature birth.
