    • This is a deeply disturbing book It is the true story of the Oyler family who's oldest son, Ben, a hemophilic. Ben was diagnosed in 1985 with AIDS, contracted from a blood infusion. He had been given at least two dozen transfusions of highly concentrated factor a year and each transfusion contained the blood of at least two thousand donors That meant Ben had been exposed to the blood of more than 48,000 people since he had been born One, or more of them, had AIDS Ben could have been exposed to t [...]


    • This book may be difficult to find. I read it over twenty years ago but it's affect has stayed with me. It is the true story of how a family copes with the impending death of their young son, Ben. The way the mother helps her son come to terms with where he is going after death taught me so much about strength and faith. The courage and grace that Ben displays as he deals with his illness moved me. The love demonstrated by the entire family was inspiring. This book left footprints on my heart. I [...]


    • i never cried, hoped and prayed so much while reading a book. till to the last page i prayed for a miracle to happen so ben could be safed. reading this book it was inevitable to develop a strong sympathy for the family. A story of a mother and the family coping with the upcoming death of their son.



    • It's been 31+ years since Chris Oyler's son Ben died from AIDS related complications. The thing of it is though, regardless of what any 'CHILD' dies from, it's inevitably a parents WORST waking nightmare.The one saving grace for the Oyler family seemed to be that despite how their young son's physical body was slowly 'shrinking' away from them, they got to witness how very much his young soul grew by leaps and bounds. Their 'hearts' were able to 'take a picture' of that. It helped sustain them t [...]


    • I read this book more than 25 years ago. It is a story that has stayed with me. I thought it was well written and I remember having tears stream down my face as I read it. This book is one I will never forget. I have it if anyone wants to borrow it."There's a word for a woman whose husband has died: widow. Why, I wonder, isn't there a term for a woman whose child has died? I suppose because you never stop being a mother even when your child is gone. You carried that child inside you, and you par [...]


    • The is the best, heart touching, tear jerking book I have ever read. I reread it periodically and it never fails to move me.


    • What would you do if you knew your child were going to die? The Oyler family, who had three sons with hemophilia, had to face that very decision when their oldest son, Ben was diagnosed with AIDS, contracted as a result of some infected factor he received at some point in his short life. Through Ben's illnesses and hospitalizations, and trying to still provide for and raise a young family, the Oylers learned how to cope with so many difficult questions: how do we tell our son he's going to die? [...]


    • I was perhaps 12 or 13 when I read this book, in a version of The Reader's Digest (in the Netherlands). I couldn't stop crying, not even after rereading it and I often did. I never forgot this story. It was the early '90s. Aids was just beginning to become less taboo as a topic in society. More knowledge about this disease was becoming available. This book helped making people understand it better, the human side to it which was especially ignored. There was one sentence which really touched me, [...]


    • One of my all time favorites! It is the true story of Ben, a seven year old boy with hemophilia, who contracts aids through a blood infusion. All this happens when aids was still new, and not much was known about it. It is written by Ben's mother, and tells how Ben and his family dealt with his diagnosis from the begining to the end. It is extremely touching, and will have you laughing one minute, and reaching for the tissues the next.


    • I cried and cried through this booke story of a mom losing her first born son. It was beautifully written though, and good to see how both she and her family survived and thrived through one of the most difficult things--the loss of a child. I really enjoyed this book.


    • This book is about a little boy who got Aids through a blood transfusion in the early 80's. His mother wrote about their story and the family struggles are sad, beautiful, and inspiring. They actually made it into a TV movie. An easy readbut lessons for all are in this book.


    • This book is the memoir of a mother whose child died of AIDS (which he got through a blood transfusion). Very heartfelt, touching book. However, I read this a long time ago. I may not like it as much anymore today, but from what I remember it was pretty good.


    • When I first read this book I really loved it (4 stars). I tried to reread it to see if I still enjoyed it but unfortunately I could not finish it and I stopped early on. I will lower the rating to 3 stars and leave it as read.



    • I've read this book at least 5 times. I love it. It's a mother's story about her 8 year old son who is diagnosed with AIDS and how she and her family cope with his dieing.


    • This book was recommended by my friend who had known this family. It was very inspirational how they drew closer to God and each other as they went down the road of losing a child.




    • This is definitely a book that I sobbed over. I briefly met the author, since I was good friends with her nephew. The story is a combination of heart-breaking and inspiring to overcome trials.


    • this is truly a heartbreaking story. i have read this for like, twenty or so times and it never fails to make me cry.


    • Later on, I watch the lifetime television movie about this family dealing with HIV. I like the book so much better.
