Finding Silver Lining

Only minutes after coming home I knew something wasn’t right. My sweet little Amara was not herself, her breathing labored and pain seared her body each time she coughed. An hour went by and I knew that I had to talk to a doctor. Calling the public health nurse didn’t make me feel any better.…
