Radio Montage Still Makes Me Cry

One of our heart families is recording their story today for an upcoming radiothon for Children's Miracle Network. It made me think of the montage I recorded for a long-ago radiothon in Tallahassee. Even after six years, William's montage still brings me to tears.

William's Story: Listen here.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go find some tissues.
