Interview

On Monday, I got a phone call from a writer, Virginia de Leon, at the Spokesman Review, a local newspaper. Yesterday I was interviewed for an article in the family section about my experience with Olivia and about the Miss Foundation and the Forget Me Not Program. I am excited that I can get the word out about these great progams. I hope that my story will help other parents and families out there that need the encouragement that everything will be okay, that they can get through their tough time and that someone out there knows what they are going through.
Tomorrow, a photographer is coming to take a picture of me for the article. I am feeling large and very pregnant and I hope that they can photoshop out my second chin.
The article will be ran on September 22nd in the family section of the paper.

What a wonderful way to get the word out! And they could not have picked a better person to tell the story.

That's great! I think that you being pregnant again just adds hope and true faith to the article. I am sure you will look darling.
You are sweet for thinking of me and w/o going into to many details, I am having a rough patch, But hopefully it will be over soon. If not I guess it will be back to the doctor.

That is wonderful. Hope I can see a copy of it. I was going to tell you when we were up about a girl in our ward who lost her little girl four years ago, she also happens to be a very good photographer. I don't know if she knows anything about NILMDS. Somehow I would like to hook her up with you cause I bet there is a huge need here in Utah. Maybe I will just give you her e-mail or blog address and you can maybe talk to her. Love you!

That's really cool Arah. I love how you've turned something really hard into something where you can help others. I admire that.

Is the Spokesman Review available online? I want to see the article! You'll have to post it if us long-distance folks can't access it through the internet.

Your baby belly is ADORABLE Arah; you will be beautiful in the photo!
