Wow, those are much bigger changes than I realized, and much more conventionally sentimental.

Yeah, that is basically my reaction. It all stems from the film's inability (unwillingness?) to accept the story's conclusion, that knowing the future deprives Louise of free will. That's not something Hollywood can accept, so she has to have both traits. Hence the change in how the daughter died - in the story, she dies in an accident that Louise could easily prevent, but won't because the fact that she knows about it makes her incapable of acting on that knowledge. In the story, dying of a disease is something Louise can't prevent except by not having a child at all, so her choice to have Hannah becomes brave in the very sentimental way that you identify.
