The title fits the story perfectly. This is a story about a baby girl who was born with osteogenesis imperfect to Charlotte and Sean O’Keefe. The parents had only wished for a healthy baby, but their baby would grow with millions of breaking bones throughout her life. Their sleepless nights and the massive pile of medical bills made it hard for the couple to smile. Above all the pitying glances of the normal parents made them think of big “what-if-kind-of-situations.” But one day soon, the O’Keefe family realizes that what-ifs aren’t as important as what they have now.
