Our Story on WHNT

Jerry's story on our family ran last night at 10 p.m. As always, he did a wonderful job. I thought he really captured Melissa's spirit and what she means to our family. I am most grateful for that.

The other thing that I hope came across is how grateful Chris and I are to those who have supported Melissa's Fund. This is not about Chris and Amy. It's about all of us working together to make life better for premature babies and their families. Melissa's Fund represents hundreds of mommies and daddies. It truly is a community effort. I think Chris said it beautifully in the story.

If you didn't get a chance to watch it, you can see it below.


The clock is winding down to the 5th annual Swim for Melissa. Wish us luck!! And thanks to all of you who are making this such an incredible event.

I stayed up to catch the story last night and it was beautiful and moving. Thank you so much for keeping your hearts open to share your story with everyone instead of selfishly keeping it to yourselves.

I live in Nashville so I had to catch it on the net and it brought tears to my eyes. I think it was a beautifully done piece that I am sure captured the hearts of many. I love your painting!

Oh my, tears are flowing! What a precious story about your family. That interview must have been really tough.

Josiah will be 5 next summer and we hope he can swim on a team, for Melissa!

Hope it all goes well. I know it will be so special for you to watch AC swim this year! Enjoy it.

Amy, that was beautiful! It definitely had me sobbing. Ann Catherine is so precious and I love her angel by her bed. We won't be there tomorrow but I look forward to seeing pictures of Ann Catherine swimming!
