Finding Beauty in the Unexpected--A Memoir

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


“In her tender and genuinely beautiful memoir, Kelle Hampton encourages us to not simply accept the unexpected circumstances of our lives, but to embrace them like the things we wished for all along.”
—Matthew Logelin, New York Times bestselling author of Two Kisses for Maddy

Bloom is an inspiring and heartfelt memoir that celebrates the beauty found in the unexpected, the strength of a mother’s love, and, ultimately, the amazing power of perspective. The author of the popular blog Enjoying the Small Things—named The Bump’s Best Special Needs Blog and The Blog You’ve Learned the Most From in the 2010 BlogLuxe Awards—Kelle Hampton interweaves lyrical prose and stunning four-color photography as she recounts the unforgettable story of the first year in the life of her daughter Nella, who has Down syndrome. Poignant, eye-opening, and heart-soaring, Hampton’s Bloom is ultimately about embracing life and really living it.

Customer Reviews


I've been following Kelle Hampton's blog for a little while. Her journey through motherhood and "glass half full" perspective has motivated and encouraged me in my life to be a better person and to really enjoy and treasure moments and the people around me. I preordered her actual book and then purchased the Apple version because I was too excited to wait for it to arrive in the mail. I'm almost half way through and I was inspired to write a comment. The words and pictures are beautiful and honest. I wish all the best to the author and her family.

Poignant and just beaytiful!

Kelle pulls you in making you feel you are right there experiencing her life. It is raw, emotional, warm, uplifting, and captivating.


Very good but blog is better

While I'm a longtime fan of Kelle Hampton's blog, I feel like the book was good but blog is better. Most of the stories in the book, I've already known from reading her blog. That said, her story of year 1 with Nella is poignant and beautiful in any format. I was just a bit disappointed as I felt like most of the story i knew already. The first several chapters were great with new reveals etc. The rest, familiar stories I had already read. What can I say? Her awesome blog is a hard act to follow but this book was still enjoyable.
