This coming Monday October 1st the Good Morning America show will do a feature about the importance of 5-point harness carseats, and they will interview my friend Christine Miller and her family. They will talk about the importance of keeping kids in a 5-point harness car seat, and will also promote the foundation they have set up in honor of their son, Kyle. Most of you know by now that I have been volunteering for the Kyle David Miller Foundation ever since I first learned of Kyle through his YouTube video (a link to his video is in my favorites on this blog page...if you have not seen it, please watch it now) The Kyle David Miller Foundation helps to educate people on car seat safety and the importance of keeping kids in a 5-point harness car seat for as long as possible, and also to use the top tether to secure the car seat to your car. They also give the larger car seats to families that cannot afford to buy them. I am proud to be a part of such a worthy cause. My kids are all in the safer 5-point harness car seats now -- even Alex who will be 8 years old in just a few weeks. Car seat safety has become a passion of mine, and I am doing my best to spread the word to others.
These two pictures, of course, are of Kyle. My heart hurts when I think that he is no longer here for his parents to hold. What a beautiful boy. I know, though, that Kyle's death was not in vain. His legacy lives on through his foundation, and he is helping other children -- including mine! -- travel safer in cars. Thank you, Kyle!
To all those who are reading this blog, please tune into Good Morning America on Monday morning to watch my friends as they share some valuable information with all of us. And tell your friends, your family, new parents, older parents, and grandparents to watch....you never know whose child might be saved because of it!
