Coincidence? - Another God Wink !!

I just wanted to let you know, that another big news story is coming out in the FW Star-Telegram on Tuesday before surgery. This is the medical story, and it will be the biggest yet in print media for Jessie. The lady who is doing this story is an award winning reporter who does all kinds of stories, including medical. Her name is Carolyn Poirot. Anyway, she was at the house on Wednesday with a photographer, and spent about an hour with us. I got a call from her this morning, and she seems very happy with the article, except Jessie was kinda grumpy and they didn’t get a lot of good pictures.

Anyway, on to the interesting story. It’s one of those “Coincidence?” stories? Hold on to your
hat….

We have received quite a few emails and calls from nice people who wanted to do something for Jessie. Make a blanket for Jessie, or build a box for her softball, or pray for us. So, about a month ago, we got an email from a lady named Debbie Fitzpatrick, who wanted to put together a scrapbook of Jessie’s Make-A-Wish trip to Disney. So we agreed and promised to get pictures to her as soon as we had some time. Well, we finally got around to it a few days ago. It’s hard to get some of this done with so many other things going on.

When I was talking to Carolyn, from the Star-Telegram, this morning, she said that she was working at about 11:45PM last night on Jessie’s story, and had the words right, but really wasn’t happy with the pictures. The phone rang, and it was her good friend and they chatted for a while. Her friend asked Carolyn what she was working on, and Carolyn told her. Her friend said “Oh My Gosh!”, “I’m working on that same little girl’s Make-A-Wish scrapbook, right now!!” It was Debbie Fitzpatrick!!!

So, After they got over the “Coincidence” that they were both working on a project about Jessie, Carolyn realized where she was going to get more pictures. She called me this morning for permission and I gladly agreed.

Wow!!
