CBS 11 News story about James

CBS 11 News in DFW came today and interviewed Matthew and I about James and our efforts to get the Giraffe named after Jamesie!

Below is a link to the video and the news story if you are interested in watching!

CBS is also airing the segment again during the 4:00 news hour today (August 10th).  I would love for you to check it out live if you are in the DFW area!  We had a great time talking with Jay, the reporter.  He was so kind and compassionate and I am so thankful that he did the story on sweet James.  Jay is expecting his first son in October and so he really understood what it was like as a parent wanting to carry on your child's legacy.
