We met several people from CMHH and several from 96.5. We got to talk about kyle's story a bit and encourage people on air to give to support research and development at CMHH - this will truly benefit so many lives - it was an honor to get a small chance to give back the hospital that has given us so much!
John was amazing. He, even with all that was going on around us, did a GREAT job of sharing kyle's story and encouraging others to sacrifice and give.
I included a clip of the interview incase you missed it!
and one of the coolest parts of the day - the station wanted to play Kyle's Song - called "God is Here" - this was a song john wrote while kyle was in the NICU. I just sat there listening with tears streaming down my face realizing how much our whole family really has changed.... we are changed. and how God truly must rule and guide and orchestrate our lives... He must... - We were in Escalante's and told the waiter that if we ran out really quick we would be back but that John was going to be on the radio and we were going to run out to the car to hear it! and next thing we know the manager comes over and offers to turn on 96.5 so we can hear it in there! And so there we sat - eating lunch together in Escalante's on Westheimer - 1 pm on December 5th - listening to a song written and sung by john that is all about our families journey since kyle was born... on Mix 96.5... the radio!!! it was surreal. fun. a great day.
(I am trying to include the radio (audio) clip, an mp3 but I can not figure out how to do it! I will soon.
