    Default Dateline - tune in Friday @ 8pm!

    As many of you know, my life has been a whirlwind of crazy the past five years. Beginning with my dad's suicide when I was 16.

    I won't give away all the details but tune into NBC's Dateline, Friday at 8pm for the story of the "Sinister Minister."

    I've caught a few previews of the show and I sit there gape mouthed like...was I just on TV??

    Hey, will do! It's a show I usually watch, anyway.

    I'm not sure if the right response is "sorry you had circumstances that would put you in a position to be on the show" or "Cool, can't wait to see you on the boob tube".

    Which ever one would feel best, pretend I said.

    I think you did a wonderful job. Very courageous testifying at the trial. And as a 16 yr old, you were very brave too!

    And, you donated some food to a cother who was in need, even while all the stress was getting to you before the trial.

    You do need to write that book. It would be so cathartic.

    If this is the story I'm thinking it is, I'll be watching too... It's been in our local news as well, since one of the "minister's" incidents took place not that far from here. (IF it's the same story that is...)

    Also a shout out to cloudyandcallie.....couldn't have done all of this without her!
    She gave me a fabulous run down on testifying and I wasn't nervous at all

    Working on the book idea as we speak.

    I want to say 'Congrats!' but that's not quite appropriate... Good job? Well, I hope you know what I mean

    Oh no girl, you did it all yourself with your strength of character and fortitude. And bravery! What other 16 yr old could survive the suicide, the abandonment and a murder, to come out stronger and better? Most people would have given up at the start.

    But you not only survived it all, you made your own way in life and were able to testify at the trial. Now one more trial to go in March. Then the book. Get Anne Rule's agent. You deserve some money for all of the suffering you endured.

    You might think of helping other victims of crimes to come to terms with their lives. You've done so well. I hope your husband is as proud of you as everyone else who knows about this tragedy, these tragedies, is.

    And btw, I have a little hint of what you should give your husband for Valentine's Day. PM coming!

    Watching now, and have to say, you are so impressive for overcoming all you have; I'm twice your age and don't think I could have done so with the class and dignity you display onscreen.

    Not on yet here, but the DVR is set in case the little one gets in the way of me being able to tune in.

    Thanks everyone. It feels empowering to get my story out there finally.
    It will be available online soon. Just talked to the producer and they're working on getting it up quickly as many couldn't see it because the the storms.

    Here are a couple of short clips. One interviewing two of the jurors, another showing accident reconstruction, and the third...a little peak into who my Dad was.

    I'm so sorry I missed it. Had the TV on, then an old friend who I lost touch with called mne out of the blue. I'll catch it on line when it's posted.

    You, Hunterkid, are an amazing AMAZING young woman. In addition to being brave, strong and made of very stern stuff, you are also GORGEOUS.

    Here is to a very bright future for you and your brother.
