Now, for Lily, being a media figure is becoming quite common. When we lived in Austin, not only was her school featured in Austin Family magazine, Lily was the cover girl. Right after we moved to Katy, Texas Children's Hospital asked if they could photograph Lily and her neurologist for their website. And now, a story in Katy Magazine.
Just another day at the office for Bird.
And I'm just riding on her coattails.
I'm not going to try and act like I wasn't a little nervous about doing the interview.
But because God tends to take care of me in even the smallest ways, it turns out the writer assigned to our story is a member of Kingsland Baptist Church. Oh, you know. The same church we attend. The one where Ryan is the pastor.
And that's how I met Kelly Boldt.
Sweet Kelly, who asked a few questions and basically let me tell our story with all the words. And then she had to take all the words and condense them into less words. Much less words. I did not make her job easy.
The end result is a truly lovely article that is a beautiful reminder of the miracle that is Lily Bird.
