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!

  1. It was a great story! All the best to you and your family as you go through the journey! My name is Rachel, I live in Saskatoon as well! My 5 year old son was born with an extremely rare chromosome disorder so I feel like although our journeys are different, we share a lot in common! You spoke of feeling like you’re on your own. I’m trying to get a network of parents with rare disorders started at least in the Saskatoon area for now. If you’d ever like to have coffee, give me a call! My number’s 665-8485. Or you can look me up on Facebook. My name is Nicandrae Martens.

  2. Lovely interview! It looks like your FB family is spreading the word. I wish there was a way to get the coffee shipped. I would definitely get some! Hugs to you and yours… Carole

    • Hey Carole, i heard that there was someone from California getting coffee shipped to her…. so, i guess what i’m saying is that it’s not TOTALLY out of the realm of possibility… and the coffee is SO SO worth it. 🙂
