Little Big Town member Kimberly Schlapman says her own issues with infertility and experiences with adoption are part of the inspiration behind an upcoming children's book. The country star will release the new book, "A Dolly for Christmas", this fall.
Schlapman was unable to become pregnant during her marriage to Steven Roads, who died of a heart attack in 2005. She married her current husband, Stephen Schlapman, in 2006, and was shocked when she became pregnant soon after with their first daughter, Daisy Pearl.
Schlapman says she hopes A Dolly for Christmas will bring comfort to other families who find themselves navigating difficulties while trying to conceive.
"A Dolly for Christmas" is due out on October 6th.
