CASEY COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) A viral video of a 4-year-old Casey County girl singing the national anthem was just the beginning for young Grace Anna Rodgers. She is now the subject of a book written by her own mother.
Angela Ray Rodgers, Grace Anna's mom, tells LEX 18 that Grace Anna was born with a rare form of dwarfism that required 14 or 15 surgeries.
It wasn't easy to watch her daughter suffer, and it was even harder to put it all down on paper.
“You had to go back to those moments when we almost lost Grace Anna,” said Angela Ray.
Angela Ray's book, 'Grace Anna Sings' is set to release on November 1st.
“I have a big story, and all the fans will love the book,” said Grace Anna.
Angela Ray said that Grace Anna's life is about inspiring others to find joy and that is why she wrote the book about her daughter.
