Frankie's mom here.... Ok, so our timing was a bit off... we thought the issue would debut Monday, July 12th... but found out TODAY that the issue is actually out on many newsstands as of today, July 8th. So here is the cover and Frankie's story is on page 40.
Thank you also to Trisha Brunner of Legacy Studios for doing the photo shoot, as well as Hailey and McKayla Nack for being a part of the shoot. Though their pictures didn't make it in, I'm so grateful for their willingness to be a part of our very special day.
A big thank you to my husband, John who continually supports me in all that I do... as well as my mom who is so amazing in supporting me... and all my family and friends... thank you for sharing in our joy. It means so much to me.
Enjoy the article! And oh, yes, Frankie's story will be featured on WLUK, Channel 11 this Sunday, July 11th at two different times. One between 7:00a and 8:00a and then again between 9:00pm & 10:00pm. If this is not a channel in your area, visit WLUK website for a live link!
