Sheryl Hess’s, The Sweetest Sound: The Miracle of Taylor Hess, is the inspiring account of the Hess family coming to grips with the reality that their beloved infant daughter has Tuberous Sclerosis. The story begins with Dave and Sheryl Hess hearing the diagnosis from physicians that their precious baby, Taylor, may never walk, talk, or have much function at all. After the initial shock wears off, the Hesses set out to dispel this declaration armed with early intervention therapies, medicines, and most of all, love.
Sheryl sets up "Taylor Command Central" where she bombards Taylor with physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and developmental therapy. There is an army of people who come into Taylor’s life to help this little girl be her best. All are touched by Taylor’s sweet nature and motivation to succeed.
