    Oprah to feature Kyron on Thursday 9/16

    Kyron's parents will be flown to Chicago to tape a segment for the air date Thursday 9/16. It will feature Kyron and give national coverage to his story.

    As someone with very intimate knowledge of the show and first hand exposure to the process and objective of such episodes, I feel VERY strongly that nothing but good can come from this. Oprah is a very influential person but more importantly she is generous and compassionate and will most certainly aid in getting Kyron's face and situation known to countless numbers of people.

    I for one will be sure to set up the DVR and have a box of tissue on hand when I watch.

    Thank you to Oprah for always defending the underdog and the helpless victim and to Kaine and Desiree for having the courage and perseverance to make the trip and do the show.

    Prayers that this will be the turning point for this beautiful angel!

    I guess they feel they have to do this, as time keeps passing by. But I fear that all that will come from it is another slew of "Kyron lookalikes" being reported across the country, causing more work for LE.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    I guess thats one perspective however I am of the school that any avenue that may even remotely help is worth travelling down. Guess Im a "glass half full" person....

    It's great they can get the time off to do this show to get information out about Kyron. The irony of what would have happened if either had been able to attend the science fair.

    Can we NOT turn this into something negative please? Just because they weren't at the fair doesn't mean this whole thing is their fault. Being on Oprah can only be positive!

    Yeah... if either had attended the science fair, this tragedy would have been averted. THAT DAY. But it would have happened, just not THAT DAY at Skyline.

    I guess I don't know what you mean. I can only imagine they would rather not have to do Oprah. It's just going to be one of those moments in life they have, where they say to themselves, and I said to myself, "dangit....if only......" I can't imagine how it must feel to be placed into that spot.

    Actually, I would be willing to bet she was asked (even with her attorney), but her attorney said "no". Hopefully, Oprah will say if there was an invite or not.

    Im sure they as parents in hindsight wish more than anything that they had been able or had the forethought to find a way to take time off and be at that science fair.

    Im wondering how many of us as parents havent had to make those kinds of choices and struggle with the outcomes down the road. Thankfully, mine have never resulted in anything as life altering or catastrophic as this.

    As an aside however, when Oprah comes a calling who says no???? Would any company, especially one as big as Intel or Desiree's place of employment that has been so supportive ever say they couldnt have time off to give national coverage to their missing son?

    And...although Oprah doesnt pay people to appear on her show, she goes out of her way to make sure its not a financial hardship for anyone to be there.

    There is a chance, even if it is remote, that this one episode could lead to the tip that blows this whole case wide open....it doesnt hurt to hope and it certainly is the right thing for the parent to do to at least try.


    I wonder how many of us would have lamb basted Kaine and Desiree had MSM announced that they said no to the Oprah show so they didnt have to miss work???

    Im all for playing devils advocate and looking at both sides of the story but sometimes I think we forget these people are the victims and there is a baby MISSING!

    This is JMO and isnt directed at anyone in particular (please dont take offense Debs) just trying to paint a broad picture.

    Is there a parent alive who doesn't have regrets in childrearing?

    I regret that one time I made my son go outside in the rain to retrieve his glasses from the trampoline. He slipped down in the driveway, got a nasty cut, had to have stitches. I thought I was teaching him a lesson about responsibility. Instead, he ended up in the ER and to this day has a scar on his knee that always causes me to feel remorse.

    Every parent has regrets. Every parent can look to the past and say, "If only, on that day, I would have handled it differently."

    Let the parent without regrets cast the first stone.

    What I mean is that people don't have to consistently point out negative things about Kaine and Desiree, especially when there's a thread that is supposed to be positive. I know they are asking themselves that question everyday, but we don't need to smashed over the head with it. We can't sleuth them, and constantly suggesting they are evil or it's their fault is just not fair to them at all, and I mean for anyone to do that. It's like that old saying, if you can't say something nice...

    Oprah is a good thing. They can get Kyron's story out even more. Maybe it will even help get him found in some way. That is what we are talking about, not Kaine and Desiree's regrets.

    I can almost guarantee that she was asked.

    Although comlpletely unrelated, in my experience with the show, Oprah very vocally and more than once offered a "voice" to the opposing side of the issue. She even offered to go to him since (being imprisoned) he couldnt quite make it to Chicago.
