Spokesman Review today


My interview was published today. You can go here to read it but you won't see pictures, so I copied the original so that you could see the photos. Sorry if you can't open it any larger.
This was a very emotional thing for me. I am so happy for the way it turned out. I am also glad that my picture turned out well. Anyway, grab a few tissues, your gonna need them. I did.

What a beautiful article- and what a tribute to what you are doing. You were right about needing a tissue.

That was wonderful Arah. I love how Olivia won't ever be forgotten through what you're doing for others. And you do look great in that picture.

The Bennett Bunch said...

I should have grabbed some kleenex. Oh Arah, what a beautiful article. I really admire you and your family.

Stephani said...

That was so beautifully written. I remember when I first heard about your pregnancy with Olivia before you had her when I was sitting next to your mom at the General Relief Society dinner last year...the tears just came to my eyes and I wondered how anyone could be strong enough to go through that kind of situation, especially feeling your sweet baby's every movement because of the lack of amniotic fluid...You and Karen are two amazing women, I have experienced loss in my own ways, but I don't know if I could ever be strong enough to go through what either of you have experienced. Thank you for the example you set of how precious every life is, and for the strength you offer by sharing the story of your little Olivia.

What a blessing to be involved with some wonderful organizations in helping others to heel & have their hearts try to smile again! You are such a wonderful example!

You're amazing, Arah. You are a great example of finding the blessings from your trials. My sister had a friend who went through the same experience. I'll have to let her know about this so she can pass it on to her friend.

Arah I am so sorry to hear about your loss. having just had a baby with my wife Nicole I cold not even begin to imagine what this must have been like. The article was great and I wish you and Matt the best.

Arah,

I know you've heard this already but I loved the artical. You are a blessing to all of us. thankyou for sharing your story and letting the world get to know Olivia. I needed to tell you something. Kelseyhad a project she needed to do for school about meeting someone she knew that had passed away and what she would share with that person if she were with them now. Kelsey chose Olivia and she said that she wanted to share her love and all the good things in the world. Anyways, I love you.
