Cold front blew our way, and today's highs were mid 40's, tonight down past freezing...throw in heavy rains, sleet, and possible snow tomorrow, and all the searchers knew that after the weekend our rescue search was going to turn...for the worse.
I am completely OVER THE MOON tonight, that I can say ROBERT WOOD, JR was found today, around 2 p.m....ALIVE!!! I swear, if I hadn't of been driving down the highway when I heard the breaking news, I would have hit my knees!!! He was taken by Med-Flight to MCV medical center where he was reunited with his family. Other than minor issues, he's going to be just fine! M.D.s haven't stated how long they will keep the little boy, but I'll try to update as I hear the latest news.
Over 6000 citizen volunteers came out over the past 6 days to search through densely thorned woods. I never heard a negative comment, and they covered 80+ square miles...grid style. The view was astonishing to see hundreds standing shoulder to shoulder on the edge of roads, clad in fluorescent vests...just waiting on orders to enter the woods.
This little boy will never know how many prayers, volunteers, love and concern we all had for him...and that's ok with me!
Today we all witnessed a miracle...Tonight...his mother's arms are NOT empty!!
