display_description "SPECIAL HEART is a deeply touching personal story told through the eyes of a journalist as he faces the most daunting challenge in life - far more frightening than reporting from battlefields, infinitely more momentous than interviewing newsmakers of the day: caring for his critically ill newborn son. Baier reflects on past challenges as he looks forward with hope, chronicling the steps on his path to national prominence as a television anchor, as well as his unexpected journey into the world of pediatric cardiac disease. With the finely-honed insight of a seasoned reporter, and the deep love of a husband and father, Baier shares with readers the behind-the-scenes stories and emotional narrative of young Paul's life thus far, including the heart-wrenching fears and decisions he and his wife, Amy, have faced together. Surviving every parent's worst nightmare, Bret and Amy emerge - just like their brave young son - scarred but infinitely stronger, and clearly understanding what matters most in life. Reliving three open-heart surgeries and seven angioplasties, the story continues today as the Baier family faces a long road toward a normal healthy life for Paul. Told by a loving father and master storyteller, this hope-filled account offers an inspirational glimpse into the family of a man who just happens to be someone millions turn to for the day's news. One hundred percent of what the author receives from the sale of this book is donated to various non-profit pediatric heart causes. "--
