"Faces of Hope" was released in 2002 by HCI Books, a publisher based in Deerfield Beach, FL. Christina Green, who was born on Sept. 11, 2001, the date of the 9/11 attacks, was one of the featured children in the book. The book is described as follows:

In this uplifting, yet poignant book, book, Christine Pisera Naman, whose son, Trevor, was born on that fateful day, has gathered together striking black-and-white photos of her child and forty-nine other babies – from each state in the union – who share the same birthday. Gathered from each of the fifty states in the union, these shining faces give hope to our nation as its citizens reflect on the anniversary of September 11.
