The story is online - here's the link:

There was a voicemail waiting on my phone after work... the story is airing TONIGHT!!!!!!

It'll be on Wood TV 8 here in Grand Rapids. They are going to do a little clip about it around 5:00pm and then the full story will be around 5:50pm. I don't know if they will re-air it during the 6:00pm news or not, or if it'll be online, but if you aren't able to catch it at 5:50pm, both of those are worth a shot. The new's website is: There's a chance it'll be up there sometime tonight.

If you watch, let me know what you think - I don't think I can watch it....... There should be some really cute footage of Joshua at least - he was building a Lego house when they came over and they taped some of that. And he was a HAM when they were asking him some questions on camera.

Anyhow - enjoy!!

Hi Amanda - I didn't see the show (tho' I am sure you looked beautiful and poised and wonderfully gorgeous!), but I read the story online. What an inspiration you and your family are. I needed a story like that today, and am so glad that I checked out your blog! Thanks for keeping up with mine!

You are so very welcome. It's really the least I can do. We're hoping to get a copy of the video and post it online - I'll let you know if we do.

Hang in there. I'm pulling for you more than you know.

Hey Amanda,

Andrew and I just watched it on the news page. What a great story! Andrew was quite impressed that his cousin was on TV...
