About the Book

Surrounded by Angels shares the deeply compelling story of a mother, father, and their tiny baby daughter, and their journey through grief and eventual acceptance of comfort in the face of death.

In December 2004, Angela Amoroso and her husband Drew suffered an unimaginable loss. Their prematurely-born infant daughter, Isabella, dressed in a tiny snowflake outfit, died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) while in Angela's arms. As the horrible news spread, Angela and Drew could barely function as they tried to come to grips with the tragedy. Eventually, they worked their way far enough down the path of grief to realize that Isabella's passing could fulfill a deep calling for them to help others. Becoming stronger each day, they continued to make Isabella's premature birth and transition into eternal life an opportunity bring deeper meaning into both their lives as well as the lives of others. Their inspiring story will teach anyone suffering a loss to accept that love knows no bounds.

Baby Isabella's life ended much too quickly, but her short life left an enduring message. Every time a lonely soul realizes that all things are possible, even in the face of heartbreak and unthinkable loss, her spirit lives on.
