"Good Things Utah"

video

Good Things Utah aired Wyatt's picture for his birthday this morning. But more amazing they told his story and sent their love to me. Words can't describe how much that meant to me. I started crying instantly when I saw his sweet little face but then to have them talk about him made it even more special. Thank you Good Things Utah--that was above and beyond anything I had imagined. Thank you for remembering our little boy.

Hi Andrea and Family,
I don't know you but have been looking at your blog for the past few weeks. I can't remember exactly how I found you - I think a link from another blog. Anyways, I recorded GTU today (I have never watched the show before) just to see Wyatt. Angie could hardly make it through the segment, and neither could I. I cannot tell you how many tears I have shed for you and praying for you to have the strength you need. I have a 7 month old and I cannot imagine what you are going through. I even thought about you as I went to bed last night and I was hoping that on his birthday you were able to feel comfort. I have been inspired by you and will continue to pray for you and your family. God Bless You all.

Wow! How neat Andrea! There are so many people who are aware of you. More than you know...so many people look at your blog and ask me about you. Wyatt is definitely remembered. Love you!

Heavenly Father is aware of you and is giving you these tender mercies to let you know of His great love for you and of Wyatt's love for you. You are remarkable. Love you!

Andrea,

What an excelent past few posts and what an excelent way to remember wyatt. i thought our little balloon release was cool and then i saw your neighborhood's!! Such amazing pictures of your amazing family. Today in school, i really want to check your blog for info about what you did for wyatt's birthday. i of course got online in my computer class and started crying, once again, in school. So everybody saw me crying and i got yelled at by the teacher!! it was all worth it though!! i was uplifted for the rest of the day by your strenght and the love that people have for you. but don't forget about all the love coming from the north!! good things utah always comes on our schools tv after they do announcements and i was so excited because they were about to do the birthdays so i thought i would be able to see it. but of course the teacher was to stuborn so i had to wait till i got home. such a great day at school cause all i thought about was wyatt. I'm so grateful for wyatt and the joy he has brought so many people, many of whom didn't know him. i love you and your family and wish that i could have been there with you guys this weekend. i loved all those sweet pictures and all the balloons that "wyatt gets to play with."(addy) hope you have a great day and hopefully ill see you soon.

Andrea,
I just got home since I have been away for the past couple of days. The first thing I did was go to my DVR and watch the Good Day Utah segment. My 7 year old son came up and said, "Look there's Wyatt". . .knowing he has only ever seen pictures of him. I had tears running down my face and he came over and gave me a hug.
Thank you for allowing us to be part of the balloon release, though I had to do it on Sunday. We were up at Hope's grave, and so I will send you a picture :0)
