Just a quick update on my fight to have Wyatt's life recognized.
First of all, thank you so much to all who have grabbed and posted my button to the petition on your blogs! I have over 100 signatures already! 106 to be exact. I am over 1/10th of the way to my immediate goal. The first tenth of a mile in our journey is behind us. 1,000 signatures here we come. Thank you , thank you, thank you.
I've even had a couple of people write a post asking the followers of their blog to help. Thank you so much! I noticed a spike in signatures after each post was written. It really helped. The internet is a BIG place, so I know there are still many more signatures out there just waiting to find my petition to have life recognized in Tennessee.
I still haven't heard back from the editor of our local newspaper, so I put a call in to have him call me back. I'll update again when I hear back from him.
Rep. Montgomery's assistant Catie has contacted me a couple of times via phone and e-mail. She is receiving your letters written on behalf of Wyatt! Thank you! Besides that, I really don't have anything to update you on at this very moment. No major breakthroughs YET. However, I'm confident they will happen.
I'm looking forward to talking with Rep. Montgomery when he returns to work from his vacation. There are still a lot of things that need to be ironed out, and I'm anxious to receive his input and ideas.
Until then, thank you for helping me give Wyatt a voice is the big and backwards world!
