My Good Morning America Segment

When I originally wrote this post I had no idea how fast it would spread. My intention for sharing my story was not to scare people or make moms never want to take their children to the pool again...it was the opposite. I wanted to share the story simply for the fact that I wanted to make others aware of something that I have never heard of.
My post went viral and it blew me away how many people were unaware. ABC Good Morning America called me recently and asked if they could do an interview. I felt like it was such blessing because it was allowing me to share about the dangers of secondary drowning on a much bigger scale.
I am beyond terrified of public speaking (or speaking in front of cameras) but I decided to go ahead with the interview, which you can watch above if you want. Where is that little emoticon with the monkey covering his eyes when you need him? Ha!
And for all of those of you who have sent me e-mails asking how Ronin is doing, he is doing great. I have both boys in swimming lessons three times a week, with a sweet lady who comes to our house. Ronin is slowly getting more comfortable with the water and my hope is that he will learn to love the water and swimming will soon be second nature to him.
