Our Family's 2:37 Minutes of Fame!

Last October, Karen Meyer, a deaf reporter who does stories about people with disabilities for ABC7 Chicago, came to our home, accompanied by her assistant and a cameraman. She was doing a story about the China Waiting Child adoption program. She interviewed Al and me, as well as Jessica Augsburger, the Waiting Child program coordinator at Sunny Ridge. A lot of footage was taken of our children.The following report aired on a Sunday morning in December...

It was a fun experience for all of us. We enjoyed seeing how a human interest story was put together. And Karen was warm and encouraging throughout the interview process. I nearly had a nervous breakdown trying to get the house cleaned up - let's just say that our home looked very "child-centered", shall we?
