You're the Best!!

Dear Steve,
My husband & I did some traveling in our motor home this winter and spring and have watched local NBC affiliates from Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. We are happy to be back in Santa Fe and turn on local news and see the professional, friendly and good looking NBC family at KOB. Just want you ALL to know how much we appreciate how all of you do your jobs. Your respect and love for each other, for your community and for your viewers comes through loud and clear.

Thank you!
Dianne Case
Santa Fe

Dianne,
Thanks very much! I appreciate the kind words, and will share them with all of our teammates. Glad to have you back as part of the morning family here!

May God bless

Subject: Adopt a Kid April 14

 

Good Morning, Steve!

Here’s the aak info for the week as well as attached files. I will upload them to your flash drive momentarily.

 

Thanks,

Brian

 

 

This week’s Kid is:

Gabriella

Name:  Gabriella

Age: 12

Story:  Gabriella, or “Gabby” as she likes to be called, is a bright, spunky, spontaneous young lady. You will often find her nose in a book as she loves to read. Reading Monster High books and collecting Monster High dolls are some of her favorite pastimes. She also loves animals and aspires to be a veterinarian one day. She participates in weekly therapy which will need to continue.  Gabby would like a family that is kind, loving, and responsible and one that will keep her ‘safe and love her forever’. Gabby will thrive in a home that can offer her patience, support and maybe older siblings.  You can listen to her candid video on heartgallerynm.org.

Steve's Families 4 Kids/Meet Jonny!

 

Name:  Jonny

Age: 7

Story: Jonny is a sweet, thoughtful, and loving young boy. He loves to be tucked in at night and enjoys that special care from his foster mother. He is very active and loves to run and play. He enjoys the Power Rangers, Legos, and likes to read. He especially likes dogs and swimming.  He enjoys school and participates in a special education class.  Jonny would do best in a family who can offer him a lot of one-on-one attention, structure, and who can keep up with his high energy. A two-parent family who has an understanding of trauma and experience with children who have suffered trauma would be ideal.  He attends weekly therapy that will need to continue when he is with his new family.

Light It Up Blue for Autism Speaks!

To say that I know what it is like to raise a child with Autism is a lie, to say that I know what it feels like to have a perfect stranger stare at my child because they are over stimulated and have to find a way to calm themselves....again would not be true.

However I have a beautiful friend that has a gorgeous little boy who stole my heart the moment I laid eyes on him. His name is Landon, and he is Autistic. Landon has made huge strides with his speech, and is the most attentive, smart young man I have ever met. I love this little boy. Everyone that comes in contact with Landon fall in love with him.

I never understood what Autism is. I heard about it, and read articles, or listened to the news. But I didn't Really know what it meant to love someone with Autism until I met Landon.

Valerie Reed is his mother, and she is raising Landon on her own. She gets up everyday and gets Landon and herself ready, drives all the way from Belen to Albuquerque to make sure he gets to the best therapy there is, and gets herself to work. I have never met a more dedicated woman. Her love for her son is so beautiful, and to sit and listen to her and Landons story will bring so many emotions you have to hold back your tears.

If you are like me before I met Val and Landon and don't know anything about Autism, or "think" you know, do yourself a favor and look up some information. Do a little research.

 

Please also remember to kick off Autism Awareness month April 2nd by wearing your best BLUE!

It makes me sad that we never get involved until it affects us directly........if that is the case, and believe me I too have been guilty of that, then Let me affect you directly with Val's story!
