I Choose Hope is an inspirational memoir and self-help book. Told by doctors at the age of five that she would die in her teens, Nikki learned how to live in the present. Mentors taught her how to overcome challenges and obstacles through faith and believing in the power of positivity. Nikki addresses what it’s like to want to ‘fit in’ with society through her struggles as an international adoptee and battling serious rare disabilities. Her courage to go on when life is challenging is an inspiration to all.

Includes journal and discussion questions to reflect upon one’s own life experiences.

Nikki Abramson’s book illustrates the many miracles that can result when we hold fast to our hope.

A friend wrote this after reading the book and making a bear for kids with AIDS in Africa: It was really fun to make with you in mind and your positive energy going with the bear to a new little friend. The children call the bear by the name on the tag too! I knit for Mother Bear Project. I LOVED your book. I could hear your voice the whole time I was reading it.


Your book is an inspiration for all to read. Your lessons for me have been about accepting others just the way they are, avoiding all judging and never give up hope no matter what your struggles are. Thank you.

I’m using the book for gift basket I’ve created for the silent auction. The theme is “Basket of hope and healing” and it has a variety of things in it. Your book was the inspiration.
