Guided by a Star

The Charlotte Weekly article came out today. It's titled "Guided by a Star." written by Regan White. I loved meeting her, she's such a sweetheart - and the email I got a day or 2 after our interview made me smile and cry at the same time, and this piece, well, I think it's awesome. And the title... How perfect is that title? :)
Click on the pics to read the actual article.

Anyone who has a spare copy of this story that would be willing to send it to me, I'd sure appreciate it. I can't seem to find any more - just the one copy we have, and I need at least one extra copy for Nova's memory book!


  1. She did a phenomenal job with the article. Of course, with a subject like you and your kids, she didn't have much choice, did she? :)

    Seriously, it made me smile and cry all at the same time. Rock on, sister.

  2. Made me smile too. I also got just a little teary eyed. Don't get embarrassed, but you are an inspiration.

    P.S. I'm getting a coffee pot too.

  3. A very nice article. Thanks for posting it. I was glad to have been a part (tho'small) of it.

  4. Ang~
    Isn't it wonderful!? I didn't cry, because the kids were all watching. I didn't want to get everyone all upset. But I also didn't breath for a good 15 minutes - holding my breath with a lump in my throat. Perfect title, eh?

    YAY! Coffee pots all around. See what happens when you know a celebrity like me? HAH! Who else can get you free kitchen appliances!?

    (NO, damn it, the media attention is NOT going to my head.)

    I don't feel like an inspiration, but I hope that I do inspire people to continue to donate and talk about CHD and educate people :)

    A small part?! Lord Pepek, without your support and that of my other readers I'd have never had the balls to do the things I've done. Don't belittle your role in all of this!

  5. Great article, I did not know about your daughter. I am very sorry that you have had to grieve twice. You are an inspiration, I know, embarrassing.

  6. *tears* The light continues to shine brightly, sweetie and you are just beaming. You're a force, Erin. I love you and am so proud to be a tiny part of your circle of friends.
