February 23, 2021 is a day I will never forget. It began with my healthy and spirited four-year-old daughter Kylie heading to kindergarten and turned into the longest night of our lives.

If you’ve ever had to take a child to the hospital – your own, a niece, a nephew – chances are you were scared. Maybe you didn’t know what to expect, or feared that your child wouldn’t understand what was going on. Maybe you were anxious yourself, and didn’t know how to explain the situation.
