From the moment of Arabella’s diagnosis, I began keeping an online journal at CaringBridge.org to keep everyone updated. I never expected to find my voice through that process, but that is exactly what happened. While I will never call anything that came from Ara’s suffering and death a “silver lining,” I must acknowledge that my confidence as a writer began to grow as a result of telling her story.
I have archived those journal entries in one document., linked below. Thank you for being on the other end of my words, holding me in your hearts, and encouraging me to continue telling my story.
