This is the agonizing, inspiring true story of Kristin's road to recovery through incredible courage and persistence. Follow Kristin and her family from the first terrifying realization that she was missing, through the ordeals of the ICU and the shock of finding out that her feet would need to be amputated to save her life...and then share with them the miracle of Kristin's recovery and learning to walk again.
