So they say...

that the camera adds ten pounds. Seriously, how does anyone know that it is just ten? What if it's really eleven or twenty or thirty for that matter?

Since I have no scientific backing, I'm going with a solid twenty-five. The camera adds twenty-five pounds. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I think my interview went well despite Monkey almost having a meltdown.

I was asked last week to be on Wake Up Alabama on Channel 42 News. Chris and Julien went with us for the interview. Monkey did well considering I woke her up almost two hours earlier than usual. I did fairly well considering I am better at writing than public speaking - on live television!

I am beyond grateful for this opportunity! Every little opportunity provides me with the means to educate people on Microcephaly. This interview was very brief. Maybe another opportunity will come along where I can provide more details and even if it doesn't, I hope that Monkey continues to touch peoples lives. Even if it is just one person. That's all that matters...just one and we have made a difference.

Although I do hope this small window leads to many doors...

I am receiving amazing feedback from the magazine article, despite our blog address being printed incorrectly, people are still managing to find us.

I had someone call me today just to tell me how touching the article was to them. I had to fight back the tears, I am so proud of Monkey. She is so beautiful, with a heart of gold and the spirit of an angel! She is serving God's purpose!

Congrats to all the feedback you are getting from Addie's story! I found you through the Parkers. We play ball with C'Jay. Your family is truly amazing. Addie is such a miracle and I look forward to being able to meet her one day. My boys already have and they just LOVE her!
