In this family oriented book, there is a family called the Burpos that are a christian based family. They enjoy going to church and praising the Lord. On one exciting day, they take their children on a trip to the zoo. At the zoo they tried to get their their son Colton to touch the butterfly, but he just would not go for that. The next day, Colton was not feeling so good and they thought that he just had a little cold, but it turned to be something worse than that. Colton had fell asleep and his temperature stared to rise up. They took him to the hospital and it turned really bad.
Once the doctor had ran some test on little Colton, he found something horrible inside of him. The doctors had to do surgery on Colton and his family was really scared. While Colton was in surgery, he experienced something amazing. He ended up seeing Jesus while he was asleep on the table. His family was still praying and asking for a healing on their son, but did it turn out for the worse or was God with him every step of the way?

Hey Buddy How Are You Doing?
Mr. and Mrs. Burpo had the chance to see their son Colton after he came out of surgery. They were both getting nervous and for their sons recovery, but when Colton came out and told them where he had been while he was in surgery, they did not know what to think. The great thing was that he was fine and there was truly a God that could work amazing miracles.
