My Cousin and His Daughters Go Viral
Jake and his daughters, Erin and Riley
Yesterday my cousin Jake posted a letter to Twitter written by his 9-year old daughter Riley. Riley and her twin sister Erin are both hearing impaired (they wear hearing aids) and were thus inspired by a commercial featuring Seattle Seahawks running back Derrick Coleman and his similar hearing problems. Riley's letter to Coleman has gone viral and my cousin Jake and the girls are making the rounds on television shows this morning, including a brief stint via Skype on Good Morning America.
