In March 2010, thirteen-year-old Taylor Storch's life was tragically cut short by a skiing accident. With only a few minutes to consider their options, her grieving family made the life-changing decision to donate her organs. Knowing Taylor's caring spirit, they were sure this was what she would have wanted. Over the course of the next two years, Tara and Todd Storch connected with four of the five people who now live because of Taylor's gift. And through these encounters, the Storches have discovered unexpected blessings that are changing countless lives.

Now Tara and Todd share their inspiring story, shining a light at the end of the tunnel for those enduring the suffering of losing a loved one. Through the stories of the donor recipients, readers will discover hope in the midst of pain. Honest with their struggles, the Storches show readers that life is a gift and our response to grief is a choice. They also speak with a clear voice about the importance and the blessing of being an organ donor, telling the inspiring story of the creation of Taylor's Gift Foundation and its goals to raise awareness of the need for organ donation, to re-gift life, renew health, and restore families. They are changing the conversation around the globe that organ donation is not about death--it's about life! Foreword by Max Lucado.

My take on this book:
In March 2010 Todd and Tara Storch face a parents worst nightmare the loss of their wonderful daughter Taylor, in the midst of their grief though they decide to give the gift of life to many who were on the verge of dying by donating Taylor's organs.  

As a parent I can't even begin to imagine how it must feel to lose a child, but then to find the courage to turn the tragedy into something positive takes strength that only our Heavenly father can provide. In sharing their story, they are bringing the topic of organ donation to the forefront, focusing the spotlight on something that literally means life or death to those on a waiting list for an organ, it was interesting to learn about the people who benefited from Taylor's gift. Overall, this is a book that not only inspires but educates.An emotional read that touched my heart. A must read for everyone. Organ donation is  a topic that needs to be discussed, and promoted, and "Taylor's Gift" certainly does that.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review.
