The book is the true story of the miraculous birth of the Merritt’s twin daughters, Hope and Faith that allowed the Merritts to bear witness to the power and majesty of God and the miracle He provided them. Twenty-seven weeks into her pregnancy, Angel Merritt and her husband Dwayne were told by doctors that the two babies Angel was carrying would not live.
