About the Book

Although Brave was a surprise four-week premature baby, he weighed way more than many of the full-time babies. Thankfully, he was in great shape and was able to come home like a normal baby. He was a happy boy hitting time lines until he hit age one. At that point, the Pediatrician referred Brave to a program where Kalee finally realized how behind he was in many parts of the body. From that time until he went to kindergarten, she would soon learn so many different procedures and different types of doctors, specialists, therapists, tests, and diagnoses; many times the hard way. Insurance wouldn’t help her, they would just put off paying for a procedure. Helping get Brave the most assistance and diagnosis was only the beginning. Kalee would have some of the same procedures to keep track of her own serious medical issues and her other son, Timber’s, diagnosis. Having God lead her each day and provide her with hope, love, and grace truly kept her going. Without the Lord at her side, she may not have seen that God selected her to have two special needs kids. It’s a blessing she doesn’t deserve and just prays that God shows her each day what she needs to be doing for Him.

About the Author

Kalee Miles began writing this book in the fall of 2010 after taking time out of substitute teaching. In January 2011, she began having seizures due to a cyst found in her brain that was causing them. She ended up having brain surgery and a stroke during the surgery in 2012 to remove the cyst. After 2 years of years of hard recovery, the doctor said he was impressed at how well she had recovered. Since she was now healthy, Kalee got God’s confirmation to stand up and get out of her abusive marriage. It was just as tough, if not harder than brain surgery, to recover from the abusive divorce. But it gave Kalee the chance to finish writing the book and teaching again, two of her favorite loves. She is so happy to be safe and free to start her day reading the Bible, praising and worshipping, praying, and spending time with the Lord. You can tell by the smiles on her face.
