Story to help a child who is struggling or anxious

Letter from the Author

When my daughter was 14 years old, she got sick one day...and never got better. Watching her struggle with a long-term, debilitating, mysterious illness has been extremely difficult. And it forced me to face something that was hard for me to accept: I can't fix it. I've felt so helpless seeing her suffer through so much physical and emotional pain. Through this time in my life, I learned that sometimes the only thing you can do for the people you love is be present. So my mantra became "I am here." I wrote this book for my daughter, but it applies to situations well beyond illness and parent-child relationships. It is an expression of love and reassurance that no matter the circumstance, you are never alone. And I believe this is a message a lot of children would benefit from hearing.
