Dancing In Heaven by Christine M. Grote

Dancing in Heaven: A Sister's Memoir


 
Dancing in Heaven is an inspirational story about my sister Annie s life, death, and her significance in the lives of those of us who loved her and others who were touched by her. Born with severe brain damage, Annie never outgrew the needs of an infant. She didn’t walk or talk. Our parents fed her, changed her clothes, and lifted her from her bed to her wheelchair and back for her entire life of 51 years. This memoir provides a window into my family’ s life with a severely disabled member. But more importantly, Dancing in Heaven is a testimony to the basic intrinsic value of human life.

This is a beautiful tribute to the author's younger sister who to the outside world was very different but to her, was just her little sister. The story is so touching and loving and takes us into the mind of her family members who thought of Annie's disabilities as just something that was part of her and it did not change the fact that they loved her and that she was a part of the family. The writing is beautiful and while there were times I felt my eyes well up with tears, there were many parts that made me smile. I really did enjoy this intimate look into such a wonderful family.
