Question From A Reader: "You said they did a good job at telling your story in a 45 minutes show, what parts didn't make the cut?"

"You said they did a good job at telling your story in a 45 minutes show, what parts didn't make the cut?"

They shot over 80 hours of footage and some things just didn't make the cut or just didn't flow with the story.  In the end, I think it was a very good "Cliff Notes" version of what happened to us.  I remember when we were talking to our producer and he had an outline of how he thought the show would flow.  We knew that trying to cram everything that happened into our episode would be impossible but his outline was pretty much spot on.

After our episode aired, we got a ton of questions.  Everyone wanted to know what else happened and the "behind the scenes" part of the story.  We did our best to answer each and every question but it become very difficult to keep up with each and everyone.  A friend suggested we write a book.  That was a great idea however there was one problem with that; who would write it and how would it get published?  He then suggested a blog. I did some research and decided that was a more realistic option.  Hence, this blog was born.

There were a lot of things that didn't make the show.  So much so that it would be impossible to mention.  I can tell you that nearly everything that did not make it is answered here in our blog.  Since it's been so long since the filming,  I truly cannot remember everything we talked about.  Also, Jennifer and I were not involved with any of the other interviews.

One thing I am disappointed about was that Steve was portrayed as being skeptical and condescending in our episode.  Granted, he asked some tough questions but none of his other side was shown.  He was very caring when speaking with our girls.  He treated us with respect and many times during filming had casual conversations with us about our ranch and our lives.  The thing that I will always remember is how he treated us when Jennifer had her breakdown during the reveal.  He was so compassionate and caring.  The fact that none of this made the episode made it appear that he was being rude to us.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

Anyway, below are some videos of portions interviews that did not air in our episode.

That's A Wrap

It has been a while since the last blog "Showtime" so I thought I would take advantage of the time off I have to write another entry.

When I first started the blog, it was our story from the beginning to where we are now.  Every story has a beginning and an end.  This is the end of our story.  Reliving everything that happened to us was a mixed bag of emotions.  We cried and laughed.  We became angry at what the Crazy lady had done to us as well as the paranormal team that put us in more danger.  Telling our story wasn't easy but our goal was, and still is, that it may have helped someone who is experiencing similar things.  In sharing our story, our hopes were that it would encourage those who were living a nightmare to come forward and get help.  Our unofficial tag line became; "No one should suffer in silence for fear of being judged or ridiculed."

The blog has been wildly successful.  It has gotten over 500,000 reads, around a 1,000 followers, 220 blog comments and around 800 email questions.  It was shared over 2,000 times.  It has been named a Top 50 Paranormal Blog 2 years in a row.  It still gets 200 hits on average per day. All I can say is...WOW!  Thank you to every one who has read, shared, and commented.  We cannot thank you enough for your understanding and support.

We cannot thank the Dead Files and Painless Productions enough for agreeing to air our story.  Also, the help of Amy and Steve was beyond measure.  We often think of where would be if they had not stepped in to help.

To answer the question of "where we are now", it is a peaceful place full of love and positive energy.  It does take work to keep it this way, but we are diligent in our actions.  Learning how to control our environment is the key and continually educating ourselves on our abilities is an endless journey.  We still have activity but it is nothing on the scale of what we experienced in the past.  As I mentioned, we have learned how to control our environment.

The whole experience has made me realize that there is more out there than what we can comprehend.  For us as human beings to think we are the end all and that there is nothing beyond us, is arrogant.  Imagine what we could learn if we would all just be open to the possibility of another world or dimension.

As for the blog, we plan to keep it up and running.  The mission has not changed.  We will continue to share our story in the hopes of helping others come forward and get help.

I will still post entries of things we experience should they become relevant.  I will also provide updates on how our girls are doing.  We will continue to answers questions.  So, don't be shy

We will start posting experiences from our past (childhood & young adult experiences, etc). Everything happens for reason and those experiences may provide clues of what was to come later in our lives.

Thank you all for the continued support.  Without that love and positive energy, our journey towards recovery would have taken much longer.

That's a wrap...for now.
