JORGE and LAURA POSADA were accustomed to being on top of the world. After a romantic courtship, the lives of these newlyweds were filled with unimaginable success and joy. But all of that changed when their first-born son was diagnosed with craniosynostosis, a birth defect that causes an abnormally shaped skull. Their priorities swiftly changed, as Jorge and Laura navigated their way through the challenges of their sonâs diagnosis and eventual treatment, which has included eight major surgeries. Laura stayed home with her son, while Jorge suffered in silence as he tried to stay strong under the pressure to perform as a Yankees baseball player.
Amid their fear, confusion, and anxiety as young parents, they decided to keep their sonâs sickness a secret to protect him from a media frenzy, but in time they realized it was this very celebrity status that would allow them to make a differenceânot only for patients with craniosynostosis but for people suffering from any type of illness. They decided to open the Jorge Posada Foundation to help kids with the same condition, a decision that gave new meaning to their lives.
Before being a celebrity athlete or a lawyer, Jorge and Laura are a father and a mother, a husband and a wifeâand the fortitude and foundations of their family values have helped them face even the worst of days. The Beauty of Love is more than a memoir about dealing with childhood illnessâit is a heartfelt and uplifting illustration of how a couple can endure stress and strife and come out stronger on the other side.
