A VERY exciting weekend here at the Davis house! After an update interview with reporter Annie Bishop from our local ABC news station aired, a New York journalist from ABCnews.com called interested in Jameson’s story. So we did a 20 minute phone interview with Christina Lopez right then, and afterward Jim and I looked at each other and said “an online article out of New York would be pretty cool”! I thought to myself that maybe at best we would be somewhere on the website in a tiny corner. Little did I know that Saturday morning we would be on their home page, right under the President and Lance Armstrong! We were blown away at how we made front page national news!!! And on Sunday, we were informed that we were also in the London Daily Mail, on multiple U.S. news stations, and on Perez Hilton’s celebrity gossip blog.
Wow, I am still in total amazement at how much recognition and interest our story has received. What an amazing weekend for us! The greatest part of all is that we have had many, many people from all over the U.S. reach out to us with their kind words, generous donations, and well wishes! We could not be more thrilled by the love and support.
We love our son so very much and the positive way our story is being shared will help not only our family but other families in similar situations. As Jameson’s parents we feel so blessed to be able to inspire other parents out there. We want everyone to know that it’s ok to have a child or children with special needs. We believe that with a postive outlook, lots of love, and encouragement these children are going to go on and do great great things!
