Kandace (one of my wonderful friends and original book-buds!!!) needs our help. This is an ADORABLE, HEARTWARMING reader question and I think you’ll love this one!

Kandace is battling  cancer, and this author’s idea has touched her. And she now does this too. <3

She asks:

I have a name that book problem. I cannot remember the name of a book.

I’m trying to remember the name of a book.  The Dad was in the military and every time he shipped out he took his kids’ stinky socks to carry in his pocket. I remember I loved the book I wanted to see what else the author wrote.

Kandace’s “stinky socks” ;) I love her sweet children!!!

I totally stole the author’s idea. Every time I go in for treatment I wear one of the kids’ socks. They always wanted me to take stuff with me and I was afraid I would lose their fav stuffed animals. This works perfect. They love picking out a sock for me to wear.  I’m going on for a pet scan today. I posted today’s socks.

I wanted to thank the author for the idea. And it’s driving me bonkers.

We MUST find this book for her!! :D Anyone?

Christina: I think it’s Unbreak My Heart (Fostering Love) by Nicole Jacquelyn. Great book!!

Kandace: That’s it! I have been trying to figure out the name of this book for weeks!!

Christina: It was such a great one! Glad I could help!

Maryse: YAYYYYYY!!! THAT’S RIGHT!! OMG I LOVED THIS ONE!! Thank you for your awesome memory, Christina!!!!!!!! :D <3 P.S. Here’s my Book Review.

Kandace, that is the sweetest/cutest thing. Even though I don’t know the book, I had to comment to wish you well with your treatments. Sending positive, healing thoughts to you.
