Bobbie Shufani has created an intensely personal and beautifully written blog titled, “Gabriela”. It is the true story of her daughter’s struggle with epilepsy. Bobbie created the site to publish a serialized story about dealing with her daughter’s epilepsy and medical treatment (or lack thereof).
I encourage you to take a moment to read this amazing story. It is important that you begin at the beginning, so I’ve included an excerpt from the first post.
Now she stood in the entry way, just her silhouette lit, she was in the same jeans and tee she had put on three days earlier, bare-footed, her beautiful long brown hair uncombed. This was my only child; I sat silently watching her, knowing I had no idea how to help.”
I hope you take a moment to read some of Gabriela’s story.
