Fairydust to Daffodils

A Memoir: A child with Cystic Fibrosis and her mother's choices



A Memoir

by Patricia Steele

Chrissy’s song has not diminished over the years

And the yellow daffodils still bloom.
She was a beautiful child created from desperation and then born amidst fairydust.  With a strong will to live amongst all the travails caused by a disease called Cystic Fibrosis, Christina Marie lit up lives and caused others to change their way of thinking.   This is the story that shaped a family and taught a woman to fight back, stand up and believe in herself.  And a child who was old beyond her years, aching to remain the big sister whom her siblings adored, but knowing her time on earth was numbered.
