I just returned from a trip for Heidi Hemmat productions where I met the sweetest 3 year old child who needs legal and financial help in the worst possible way. I am producing a legal video documentary for this family which involves capturing a day in his life and talking to all of the people involved in caring for him on a daily basis. The little boy had a common viral illness, and while his twin brother was treated well, this little guy was denied oxygen while in the hospital, and needless the say, the results are devastating. HIs mother is a single mom, working a full time job, and caring for the little boy, as well as 3 other children. As many of you know, I have 2 and 4 year old children. This case hit close to home. I can’t even imagine being a single mom, working a full time job–let alone caring for a 3 year old with special needs, but this mom was so sweet and genuine and she loved all of her children so much.
As I was driving home from DIA, consumed by thoughts of this little boy and praying for him, I was blessed with the most spectacular sunset. I could not help but think God and the universe were telling me I am doing the right thing, telling stories that need to be told, in a more private, respectful kind of way. I am grateful for this and so much more. Carpe Diem.
I just want to say “it’s never the wrong time to make the right decision,” I am quoting someone at FOX31 who I didn’t know that well, but respected. In the end, I am thankful to be working toward true “problem solving” and helping those in need get what they deserve financially to live their lives.
