Author Helping Children Cope

Dear Friend,

I want to share this story with you. In it, I tell you how I felt as I was turning 8 years old and about to be separated from my dad. My dad was in the military and the military is a different kind of life.

You may be going through a similar sad time in your life or know someone who has to be separated from a person they love and will miss very much. I wrote my story because it might be your story, too. Sometimes it feels like we’re on an emotional roller coaster, with lots of ups and downs. I hope my story will help you.

I encourage you to write your own story, as I did, so you can get through lonely times. Please share your story here, and tell me what you think about mine.

All my best to you,

Carolyn
