From visions of a dream-come-true to the unimaginable nightmare of epilepsy and radical brain surgery at five months old, Nora’s story entwined with her grandmother’s is one of love, transformation, awakening and perspective.

It reminds us that every new life can make life new. It is the supreme affirmation that we’re never too young or old to become who we were meant to be.
