When Molly was born, the Hansons didn't feel capable of raising their child with special needs. They had Molly baptized in the hospital and left empty handed, expecting to nurse broken hearts for a lifetime. But two days later, the Hansons went back to get Molly and bring her home. This is the story of the many goodbyes they have said to Molly throughout her young life. It is also the story of the challenges they've faced obtaining social services. It is a triumphant story of how the family -- including Molly -- has survived and thrived.
