“It all started by him saying ‘Dad I really want to help. I really want to help people,'” Joshua told CNN.
The story is told from Wade’s point of view. He starts with the day his life changed for the foreseeable future.
‘I asked daddy, ‘Why does it have to be just us,'” Wade wrote. “He said, ‘Because of the coronavirus.'”

That was just the beginning. Shortly after he was pulled out of school, Wade’s grandmother caught the virus. Fortunately, she recovered. Then, Wade and his family welcomed his baby sister to the world.
Writing the book served as way for Wade to process the big changes while also sharing his story “to help get kids through the pandemic,” Wade told CBS affiliate WGCL.
“We’re not sugarcoating that everything is perfect,” Joshua said. “Everything is not perfect. But it will be okay.”
The book was published on October 2 and is currently listed in the top 100 on Amazon’s Children’s New Baby Books best sellers.
