Next Wednesday, December 2nd at 9 PM EST, Discovery Health Channel will be airing a special titled "Truth Be Told: I Have A Special Needs Child". One of the three families featured on the show will be the Sheridans. Samantha Sheridan is a tremendously brave and awesome 14 year old girl who lives in Florida. She has just undergone the stem cell transplant procedure that Dr. Wagner at the U of Minnesota has been doing for a few years now.
This special has previously been scheduled to air several times and the network, for some reason or another, always pulls it off the schedule at the last minute. So hopefully I won't have to blog a retraction of this ..... (ahem ... Discovery Channel!!).
I was watching a DVR'd episode of 17 Kids and Counting this morning when I came walking back into the living room with some of Leah's laundry. I looked at the TV, gasped and said "That's Sam!!!"
I was so excited I had to rewind the show and snap a photo:
I hope everybody can watch the show and learn about our beautiful hero Sam, and her amazing family.
In other news ....................
Can you tell Mommy is super duper excited about Leah's first Christmas?! Yes, she has 3 stockings. I figured she's been such a good girl that Santa will need more than 1 to fit all her goodies in. : )
