Sarah Defies Gravity

what one little chromosome taught me about love, life, and defying gravity.

The state of Christopher 2012

My sister died on January 20th, Sarah’s 9-month birthday. She was sixteen. We knew this time was coming, but it’s still a difficult thing to face.

I’ve been in California since January 18th. Sarah is in New York with Dec. I feel like I will never be happy again.

    Oh Christopher, I’m so sorry. I know people like to tell us that it’s easier to take when it’s expected or have a chance to say goodbye, but I don’t agree with that at all. I think it just gives us a longer time period of trauma that accumulates into the moment when our loved one passes. I hope you’re able to find some peace.

  2. I am so sorry to read of your sister’s passing. May you find peace.

  3. Christopher, my heart breaks for you. I’m so glad your sister was able to meet Sarah but I know that her time her was cut entirely too short. I am so sorry and I hope people are surrounding your family with love right now. In all seriousness, if there’s anything we can do from afar, please share. I wish there were words to comfort you and your family right now.

  4. Oh, Chris. I am so so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  5. I am so sorry Christopher. My thoughts are with you and your family. 😦

    Christopher, I am so sorry for the loss of your sister and Sarah’s aunt. I’m sorry I’m late saying so, I only just now found out.
    Your sister helped to prepare you to be Sarah’s father. Give Sarah an extra snuggle. You both need and deserve it.
