The cover story aired on Wednesday night. My parents, sister and I gathered on the couch together to watch it. I really hope that this story helps others … lets them know that there is a place to go when your little one is grieving.
Here’s the behind the scenes recap of how this all went down …
At 6:50 I looked at his teacher and said, “I couldn’t make this up if I tried … I have Fox 6 News coming to my house in 10 minutes and I really have to get home.” We both had a giggle. A teacher said she would help finish up for me.
I flew in the door with just enough time to throw some Chapstick on need brush Jaden’s hair. Enter Fox 6 News.
Jaden went first. He did so awesome! I sat on the couch to his right. He didn’t really need me. He knew what was on his heart.
Then it was my turn. While answering my questions, Jaden stood by the camera guy. He thought it was pretty cool. All of a sudden he was walking around wearing a Fox 6 News hat. We laughed and I cried a bit. It was emotional retelling Owen’s story.
