Today’s Virtual Book Tour post comes from Brittney at Notes from a Been-There Mom. Brittney has shared some of her journey on our blog before–the birth story of her fourth baby, born with a cleft palate. Since that birth, she has experienced multiple heart-breaking miscarriages.

We are excited to announce the start of our 2014 Virtual Book Tour! From now until Mother’s Day we’ll be sharing posts from readers around the Internet discussing The Gift of Giving Life. We’re also giving away some amazing prizes!
