Good Morning America Interview
Years ago I read a book where the father said that beofre his children were born he planned that if any of his children came to him with "bad news", the first words out of his mouth would be "I love you!" I have used that before, thankfully not with anything horrible, but I am so thankful for that plan. Sometimes we receive news that can knock out feet out from under us. That's when we really need a plan. Otherwise, we react with emotion.
It sounds like a similar thing is what has been able to keep the Chapman's son strong - the unconditional love of a family.
