Amy Kuebelbeck
WAITING WITH GABRIEL: A Story of Cherishing a Baby's Brief Life (Loyola Press, 2003)

When Amy Kuebelbeck was told that the child she was carrying had a fatal heart condition, she and her husband were faced with an impossible decision: to give their baby a chance at life – and with it, enormous pain and suffering, – or to let their baby die naturally, most likely just a few weeks after birth. The unforgettable journey that ensued would change not only their lives, but also the lives of everyone who came in contact with them.

Amy is a former reporter and editor for the Associated Press in Minneapolis and has also written for newspapers including the Los Angeles Times and the Seattle Times. She lives in St. Paul, Minnesota with her husband, Mark Neuzil, and their daughters, Elena and Maria.
