Watch Oprah October 28!

My good friends will be part of the Oprah show on October 28! That is tomorrow. Or today if you get this tomorrow.

Anyway, you have to watch!

The show will feature 12 amazing children and that will be in a new book with Celine Dion called 12 Heroes Among Us: An Incredible Journey with Celine Dion

Our friends have had a wonderful experience with Celine Dion as this book was being assembled. Celine and her team have been SO kind to them. There are photos and of course the stories of these incredible kids and their parents in this book. I can't wait to get a copy! I can have it autographed even!

Our friends have a sweet, smart, strong little girl named Anna. She is my daughter's age and they are good buddies.

You can read all about Anna's story and her part in the book right here. She is a miracle. Literally a walking miracle.

I remember when her mom was pregnant. I was pregnant at the same time. We had just both moved into our neighborhood and not yet met. I heard through the grapevine that her baby had Spina Bifida. My heart broke for this new mom because I too was going to be a new mom and just knew how this news would make me feel.

Like everything she does, she handled it with the most amazing grace. Later, after our babies were born, I would become good friends with Anna's mom. She has been a true blessing in my life! She went on to have 3 more children and continues to amaze me daily. They are a family full of faith and I have been privileged to witness their walk.

So they tell me there are some great stories that Oprah is going to feature tomorrow. Click here to see a slide show preview.

So, check your local listings, watch some Oprah, grab some tissues and take a break.

We will be at gymnastics, but I will be sure to TiVo it to watch later. Thanks for letting us know.

Although I do not know them personally, I remember seeing the Reader's Digest article. What a miracle!

Anna is a niece of a very good friend of mine in Richmond, VA. Unfortunately we saw Anna last week at her Great Grandmom's viewing. I know that is where she gets her strenght.

We saw pictures of her, Celine and Oprah. She was very busy running around with all of her cousins that night.

It is wonderful to see how much she has grown and flourished.
