A Dolly For Christmas – Daisy, Kimberly, & Dolly

In the story, all Daisy wants for Christmas is a little brother or sister. Her parents have tried everything to make her dream come true, but nothing is working. So Daisy takes matters into her own hands, praying every day and writing a letter to Santa Claus about her one and only wish. Daisy’s parents are touched by her strong belief and grateful for her help, but as they explain, sometimes you have to wait. God will give you the perfect gift when the time is right. In this heartwarming holiday tale, Kimberly shares the true story of the Christmas when her family became whole.

The Little Big Town star hopes the story will inspire other families to maintain their faith, especially when facing infertility issues. The book is also a tribute to her daughters’ love for each other. As fans may recall, Kimberly and husband Stephen Schlapman announced their adoption of Dolly in January 2017!
