The story of Carried is based on a blog by the parents of E, a two-year-old. The story is one of her and her family, told from the point of view of E and her mother. The family blogged from E's point of view almost daily as a way to document her journey with AML (acute myeloid leukemia). Not sure if E would be a statistic or survive, the family decided to document the story from her point of view. The chapter of Faith is about having faith in God's plan. The chapter of Hope is about hope that E would survive, and that the family would make it through the rough rebuilding of their "normal" lives. The chapter of Love is about what it is like to raise a child that has lived in a hospital. The story is not one of a perfect life or a perfect journey. It is perfectly messy and portrays real life for the family.
