Because She Was

We are excited to share with you news of a newly published book, by the mom of one of Wellspring’s very first STARS, Hallie Siegel.  Shelley Brouwer, Hallie’s mom, has written a memoir about life with her sweet daughter. Shelley’s book, Because She Was is a universal tale of a mother’s love. The book shares authentically the deep joy that raising a child with disability brings as well as the challenges. Because She Was tells of the incredible way Hallie chose to live her life; with honesty, trust, and courage – and the beautiful way her life impacted so many others.

Proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit Wellspring Community. The book is available on Amazon, Shelley’s web-site and blog,, or Instagram at shelbrouwer.
