Thank you for all of your comments and emails over the past few weeks. January was a really hard month. A crushing and simply unimaginable diagnosis for a child in our extended family. Unanswered questions and heart-breaking scenarios have been creeping into my mind at all times of the day. (And night.) I’ve received the family’s blessing to write about it here, and I will because these wonderful people need all the prayers and support you can give during their long and impossibly difficult journey.
I’ve tried many times to write the post, but I fail every time. It’s just too raw. Too impossible to convey just exactly how I feel. Most of all, it’s as if hitting publish confirms how real it is. I don’t want it to be real.
But I will write about it. Soon. Because it’s becoming increasingly clear what my role should be during this difficult time. Because I have a platform to raise awareness and I need to use it. Because I want to do everything I possibly can to help. Most importantly, because every day I don’t write about it is a day that passes without all of your prayers, good wishes and support.
