When watching this story, I am reminded that a positive outlook is important, and no matter how many obstacles my life may seem to have, I am truly blessed. I have read that Kyle and Samantha Bush are very compassionate and caring people, and this article shows that side very well. I'm glad they were able to make Kyle feel special and have great memories.
