Tonight was the airing of our interview with CTV news. You can read the article here or watch the clip here. Other than thinking i look a bit like a walrus in a sweater, it went rather well! Ozzie was absolutely adorable, and that’s what matters.
We were all abuzz about the interview, and i was on the phone with my mother when i got another call. So i said goodbye to my mom and answered the phone…i’ll paraphrase the conversation as best i can
“Hi,… is this Laura?”
“Do you have a son named Ozzie?”
“My friend saw your story on tv and she said that i have to call you. I’m 32 years old and I have Moebius Syndrome”
I was floored! She looked me up online to find my phone number and called.
She lives in Melville, SK. That’s 4 hours away! That’s in Saskatchewan!! i cried when she told me.
we spoke for 25 minutes, and i really can’t tell you how amazing it was. We’ve friended each other on facebook and hope to meet up sometime in the future.
thanks again, CTV!
