Good Times

It’s Showtime!!

64 Comments 11 December 2009

IMG_3689Alright, so here it is…the big one, the announcement – that thing I referred to as GINORMOUS about three weeks ago.  The long-awaited, much-anticipated, breathtaking…ok, wait a minute…I’m taking this a bit too far.  Actually, it’s not that big of a deal to about 99.9% of the world, but it certainly is to our little pack of crazies here in the Jones house!

Judging by the many, many comments we have received from lots of different people over the last year-plus, you may have already guessed what the big announcement is – we are going to be on TV…again. But this time, it’s not the nightly news that will narrate our story.  Rather, it is a local production company behind the cameras and this time we will be taking this tour nationwide! Unfortunately, I cannot be too forthcoming with the details yet, but I’ll tell you all I can (I can’t even say what network is carrying it!).

The production guys (I can’t mention their name, either)  found out about us from the Statesman article that hit the papers about a week before the babies were born.  They tracked us down through the website, met with me in the hospital cafeteria to explain their background and vision for the show, interviewed us in Casey’s post-partem room, and accompanied us to the NICU the first time Casey held one of the babies.  They have followed us on date nights and they went with us to the park; they were at the babies’ dedication to the church, they joined us at the Thanksgiving table, and they were in the operating room last week as Casey had her surgery.  And they have been with us at all points in between.

So they put together a little clip which was sent out to several networks in June and while many expressed interest, only one committed.  And after nearly six months of negotiations between the producers and the network, the deal has finally been inked!  There will be one show, at least, I guess technically it is called a pilot.  It will be one hour, though they are currently discussing turning it into a two hour show (which would be really, really awesome) and it will air some time in the spring (yes, I know a more precise date, but I cannot say what that date is)!  If the show does well (hint, hint – tell everyone you ever thought of knowing to watch it!!), we will do a second or third show and if those do well, there is a possibility that the network will commit to a series.  Again, that would be really, really awesome!


We have made it no secret that we believe it is our responsibility as Christians to share our story with as many people as care to listen.  We told you about our attempts to get “A Baby Story” to do a show on the birth.  And we have made our lives as public as possible in pursuit of our goal of “letting our light shine” for all to see the power of Christ in the world today.  So while this announcement we are making today may not come as much of a surprise, I imagine that it is being met with some level of disappointment and disagreement by some folks out there who are not pleased by our decision to do a TV show.  How can you exploit these babies?  Is the money and recognition really worth it?  How can you betray their privacy?  Aren’t you taking this a bit far?  Etcetera, etcetera…we have actually heard much of this already.  So allow me to address this briefly…

This is a decision that we made prayerfully and after much discussion with our family and other Christian friends and mentors.  If we had ever received a hint that this was not the direction we should go, we would have stopped everything immediately.  We never received that hint.  It is our intent to continue along with this process in this exact same way and we ask for your prayers along these same lines.  As each new opportunity and challenge presents itself, we will need the clarity that only our faith can provide as to how to proceed and we believe the prayers of our friends and family will be critical to receiving that clarity.

Obviously, if we felt as though this were some sort of exploitation of our babies, we would not be doing this.  The babies and Eliot are not asked to do anything other than what other kids and babies do – the only difference being that there is a camera capturing their activities.  Believe me, we do not withhold bottles from them to create ratings-grabbing drama!  And the money?  Well, it has not come and likely will not come unless it goes to a series which is not highly likely.  The income we will earn from the pilot is insignificant to say the least.  In other words, the money, if it comes it will help, but it has never been part of our discussions with the producers and is not at all why we are doing this.

It boils down to this – we believe that this is a blessing that we have been given.  And as most blessings tend to be accompanied by much responsibility, this one is no different…we happen to know a thing or two about that whole blessing/responsibility combo!  We are taking it one step at a time and doing everything we can along the way to allow God’s hand to do the heavy lifting through this experience!  Let me put it to you in another way…

I found out back in August that the JonesLife site had received 45,000 unique visitors since its launch less than one year prior. 45,000 people from all over the world chose to log onto our little website and check in on the tales of our family’s population boom…45,000 people!!  What they got when they logged in was not just a few cute pictures and some funny stories about baby poop.  No, we believe they got plenty of pictures and poop stories, but that they also got much more than that – a story of faith and of love and of a family holding onto both as they encounter the greatest challenge they have ever faced.  And I believe this is why our site has grown as it has.  We started the website and went public with our story to allow God’s light to shine through this experience in the hopes that his work in our lives would impact others in a positive way.  We never imagined that 10,000 let alone 45,000 people would be touched by this…and that is what we get for underestimating the Big Man!

The company producing the show for our family averages 1.2 million viewers on the shows they produce.  I’m sorry to keep repeating myself, but here I go again…1.2 MILLION people!!  It is mind-boggling to think that by the time the Fab Five reaches their second birthday it is wholly possible that their story will have impacted over 1,000,000 lives.  And what those 1,000,000+ people will get when they tune in is that same story of faith and of love that has defined our lives and promises to define yours as well if you allow it to do so.

When you look at it in this light, we did not see how we could say anything other than this…It’s Showtime!!

  2. I think that is great. The world needs more people who are not ashamed of God and Jesus Christ and not embarassed to admit it. I look forward to watching your show, it will be a success!

  3. Cori says:

    That is so cool!! I’ve followed your blog since before the babies were born! I can’t wait to hear more!

  4. Debbie says:

    When God is in control we never know where He will lead us. Keep Him in the pilot seat and you will be blessed.

  5. Are you kidding me? It sounds like Figure and TLC are behind this. Another Jon and Kate plus 8….I am one of those people who are disappointed although I could see it coming.

  6. Canadian Mom says:

    Have u learned nothing from the Gosselins???

  7. Another_One_Bites_The_Dust says:

    Well, kiss your marriage and religion goodbye, now that you have entered the dark side. You people are sick. Have the pathetic actions of the Gosselins taught you nothing? And sure, God is pointing you in this direction… sounds to me you have science to thank for your success. If god really was in your corner then you would have had kids, and your ‘six pack’ at that, without needing the Drs. help.

    Have fun

  8. Lynn says:

    God has truly blessed you and given all of us a gift that is beyond comparison. Yes, there will be those who are negative about this announcement, and those who remain silent in their disagreement, however, there are those of us who understand that you love the Lord and are depending on Him to guide you every step of the way. I pray that your walk will continue to grow and that He will be exalted in a way that could not have happed any other way. You are truly in His hands. Love you!

  9. Jessica says:

    Do not distort God’s holy word to justify going down this very dangerous and selfish path! Run the other way while your family is still intact. It is never God’s desire for families to split, and you are playing with fire!

  10. learn the others says:

    Really? Seriously? Do yourselves a favor and don’t let your children get sucked into this. It will rip your family apart. Learn from others mistakes. The Gosselins, The Roloffs, The OCC guys. All of these reality families put their lives in front of a camera and lost what mattered most. Is money really more important than family? I’m sure those families thought they were solid as a rock, but found out different. I am not trying to be nasty about it, but you really must think about your children’s privacy and your own sanity. Is it worth the risk of your family. If it is, then go for it. If it is not, don’t do it. It is not like you haven’t already seen one or more families ripped apart from something like this.

  11. Alison Milligan says:

    Congratulations to the two of you. I linked to your blog months ago from the Wilkinson’s blog- which I linked to months prior to that.

    Stay positive and don’t let the haters drag you down!

  12. Kim says:

    GOD bless your family.

  13. co says:

    Unfortunately, I’ve heard your story before and have no desire to re-read or see it again.

    Only time will tell and by your actions, whether you were indeed sincere in your beliefs and lifestyle and goals. You’ll have to prove it to a GREAT many people, though.

    There are many, many other ways for you to “let you light shine” than putting your innocent children in front of a tv camera. No matter how hard or often you try to convince yourselves and others or which words you choose to use – it’s still child exploitation. Your children deserve better from you. Whether it’s a special or a series, I’ll not be a viewer.

    I wish you and your beautiful family well; much success and happiness for you all.

  14. Lauren says:

    It sounds like Jon and Kate + 8 round two. Please take a look at what’s happened to the Gosselins and don’t do this show or the series. Figure 8 and TLC have exploited the Gosselin 8 and helped destroy the marriage. Please, rethink this decision. The Gosselins signed their contract because they didn’t have the money to take care of their family. If it’s about finances, get some help from family or friends. Things have a way of working out. Please reconsider.

  15. I worry says:

    I know these production companies are trying to persuade you with money and it all seems great right now. If you sign a contract with them, they will own you. Go ask Jon Gosselin what his life is like right now. TLC has him by the ***** and won’t let him even earn a living right now. They are also trying to drain him of what little money he has left. Why don’t you go discuss this with him before you leap in. I don’t want to see a production company ruin another family. They will act like your friend while the money is pouring in. Did you know the network and production companies earn millions off of your show? They will throw you a few thousand to keep you sucked in. Its not worth it. Your family looks precious, and I wish you well with your babies, but I won’t be watching another show that exploits children.

  16. JJ says:

    You wrote: “the money, if it comes it will help, but it has never been part of our discussions with the producers and is not at all why we are doing this.”

    I don’t know anyone who would welcome the risks, scrutiny and interference in their lives if money was not a deciding factor. While I’m sure you’ve justified this in your own mind as best you can, you are playing with fire. I wouldn’t risk my family’s happiness and my marriage for any amount of money. I hope things work out well for you, but there’s unfortunately a 95% chance based on prior shows like this, that there will be collateral damage.

    Hope it’s worth it. Good luck. I’m afraid you will need it.

  17. Megan says:

    I just wanted to say that I love helping out and I love the babies! Don’t listen to the mean things people say because they don’t know you and your family. I feel truly blessed to be able to spend time with ya’ll and I know that ya’ll don’t rush into things and do things that you can’t handle. And you know what people, if you don’t agree with their decision and aren’t going to watch then why “waste” your time and give your mean opinion?! It’s not your life and until you’ve been in their situation nobody can say anything. And people think they know so much about the Gosselins; well guess what, you don’t know what they’re going through either because you aren’t a part of their lives and you only hear stuff through the paparazzi. U get real reliable info there. Ya’ll are a strong family and it would take more than a show to tear ya’ll apart. The babies are a blessing! I love you guys!

    Psalm 56:1-4
    Be merciful to me, O God, for men hotly pursue me; all day long they press their attack. My slanderers pursue me all day long; many are attacking me in their pride. When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?

  18. joan says:

    Your news is quite disturbing to me, as I believe God can and will use you without putting your babies in front of the cameras.

    Rejoice in those five healthy babies and enjoy them for who they are, not what they can bring to the family coffers.

    I’ve followed your blog for a long time. You have a great readership, and I think your testimony is quite clear as to Whose you are and what wonderful things have been wrought in your lives.

    I’m a grandma who has seen lots of living and my whole life has been about children, keeping them safe, keeping them cherished in the family circle, and not having them exploited!!

    One of the comments said not to listen to the ‘haters’. I am far from a hater. You are a young family and what you are choosing to do with the children could be so detrimental to the family unit.

    Now I have one more thing to add. I question the spiritual maturity of a young man who refers to the God of the universe, as “the big man upstairs”.

    Please rethink this huge decision. I can certainly see the fun of doing a show once or twice a year, but anything more…..I’m going to trust God to shut the door on that!

  19. 1 John 4:4 says:

    As a young, new convert to Christianity, 34 yrs. ago, I too ‘used’ the same phraseology that you are using in your ‘argument’ for why you ‘should’ take this opportunity to share your faith. It’s very easy to gloss over the reality of what you are about to embark upon, afterall, the possible financial benefits are very tempting.

    I also know, as a young couple, you believe that none of what has happened to others before you, could possibly happen to you. Remember, even Satan comes as a wolf in sheep’s clothing. If you watched any of the Gosselin family’s shows, you know what happened. Kate and Jon became enamoured w/the celebrity lifestyle, and guess who paid the price for that? Eight innocent children. I know that is not what you want for you little ones or your marriage. I encourage you to revisit any ‘obstacles’ you believe God has not placed in your path. The demise of the Gosselin family, and more importantly, the outcomes for their children, should be 8 good reasons God just may have presented to you, as to the direction He wants you to he wants you to take.

  20. Lexy says:

    I hope you’re prepared for every crazy, bullying lunatic to gather on hate blogs and discuss every aspect of your personal and private life. They will tear your family to shreds, and under the guise of being child advocates they will discuss and mock your family over and over again. They will stalk you on the internet and in real life – and they will truly believe that it is their right to do so.
    Seriously, for the sake of your kids, reconsider this. The poor Gosselin children will someday go on the internet and see such hate blogs as Gosselins Without Pity (google it) and they will suffer more from that than from any mistakes their parents ever made. There are hateful people in the world and the internet has provided them with a breeding ground. I see that some of them have already posted here.
    I wish you all of God’s blessings, and pray that you realize what you are getting yourselves and your family into.

  21. CPMOMM says:

    Quoting Lexi
    “They will tear your family to shreds, and under the guise of being child advocates they will discuss and mock your family over and over again”

    FYI- most of us that do this, I being one of them, are professional child advocates or early childhood teachers, and know what we are talking about. There is nothing good about children being put on TV for religious sharing or monetary gain.

    You could see it from the start, way at the beginning even before the babies were born, that this was the goal that these parents were after. Now they have got a TV show in the works and will be risking everything they have.

    FYI God doesn’t tell people to do go on a reality TV show to share his word…people use God as an excuse.

  22. Theresa & your loyal fans! says:

    Don’t listen to any of the trolls or the negative comments. Unfortunately your blog was linked on a terrible Jon & Kate hate site. Pure trash.. Everyone is pretty much admittting to posting here under fake names, trying to discourage your family out of sheer petty jealousy. Do whatever you need to do to to be happy and sucessful for yourself and your family. You are blessed! We are so excited for you and hopefully your new show!

  23. Sue says:

    CPMOMM, why do you care so much? dont you have a life? if not get one. And stop being a busy body.

  24. Renee Sindt says:

    I have never commented before, but I have been following your story for a long time. I go to church with Carl & Doris & I am also the mom of a preemie, now 14 months old.

    I know some people do not agree with your decision to move forward with this show because of the fallout from some other TV families. I, on the other hand, think that if you can share your story with the world & can glorify God through it, then I think you should do it! Stay focused on God & remember that in all you do, there will be people watching who may need to see what a real Christian family is like.

    If your show gets picked up by a network, I will be watching! I will be praying that things will continue to go smoothly for you all! Lots of love, hugs & support to you today!

  25. Katie says:

    When are people going to learn? Reality shows are the death of relationships. 99.5 percent of the people on reality shows end up in divorce or broken up. Take a read: Nick and Jessica, ( the newlyweds ) Brittney and Kevin ( Chaotic ) Bobby and Whitney ( being bobby brown ) Jon and Kate ( need I say more ) Hulk and Linda Logan ( Hogan knows best ) Hef and his original 3 girls next door, Travis Barker and Shannah Mokler ( Meet the Barkers ) Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro ( Happily ever after )
    The Tuettles ( both sons now dont speak to their own father and one ended up in rehab OCC ) Matt and Amy Roloff ( Little People big world ) having marital problems. The list keeps going . WHY take the chance? That is just plain ignorant. Hope they break the cycle.

  26. Annie says:

    God Bless you! I am looking forward to seeing your special and hope that it brings many great blessings into your lives (and the lives of others). Your children are beautiful and I know you will inspire many with your story. Best wishes.

  27. CPMOMM says:

    Sue you are right I am a busy body especially when it comes to children being exploited.
    And dear… I do have a life- my life is full with people who are honest and caring and make an good through WORK- not exploiting innocent children on TV.
    This family created this blog for people to follow the lives of their children, which has been a pleasure up until now, but it is more likely than not that many of these bloggers are busy bodies like me.
    Now let me ask you a question…why do you care so much?

  28. CPMOMM says:

    Opps- left out a word. I wanted to say make a good living through work

  29. Crystal Clark says:

    I have been following your story and I will personally be looking for the show…

  30. Michelle says:

    1 Peter 3:8 “Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous.”

    I normally do not comment on these type of things, but after reading all the responses I am shocked. How dare you criticize Ethan’s faith?! You have no room nor the right to talk about his or Casey’s personal relationships with the Lord. I cannot believe such accusations were spoken of them. All of you who say negative things, and consider this child exploitation, and believe that Casey and Ethan will end up like Jon and Kate do not even know this family. I have had the opportunity to get to know Ethan, Casey, and the kids and they are truly special people. They love their children with all their hearts, and they have a strong faith and marriage. They are not the kind to get caught up in the “celebrity” aspect of it. The babies are doing wonderfully, and will continue to thrive with the amazing family they were blessed with. Give the Jones’ a chance– even just one episode–and you will see their true motives for this. To let their light shine, to glorify God, and to inspire other people. They have overcome so many obstacles, many not mentioned in the blogs. They have incredible strength and big hearts, and I know this from personal experience. The only people who are going to possibly bring these kids down are people who are writing discouraging, negative, rude messages to this family. I am beside myself reading these comments about such a wonderful family. Instead of telling them to “reconsider”, people need to “reconsider” the Jones family and see them for who they really are. It is not fair to judge them based on other families. Attempting to compare Britney/Kevin or Nick/Jessica to Ethan/Casey is like trying to compare apples to oranges. It doesn’t work, and they are in an entirely different league. I care so much because I know them personally, which most of their supporters do as well. I have been able to see what goes on in their home, first-hand, without the cameras. They are honest, hard-working, loving parents. I will stand by the Jones family as I know they are great people and are being guided by the Lord. Sending negative comments their way will accomplish no good doings.

    Ethan and Casey,
    Keep up the amazing work! You and your family are in my prayers daily, and I know you guys will be able to overcome whatever is thrown at you. I am and will continue to be a supporter, and help out where I can. You guys never cease to amaze me. Can’t wait to see the babies again soon too :-)

  31. Adriana says:

    Congrats! It sounds like it’s going to be a tough road but hang in there and do what’s in your heart.

    God bless you and your beautiful family:)

  32. CPMMSANTOS says:

    Good for Ethan and Casey that they have overcome many obstacles. But you must realize that many,many other people overcome many, many obstacles except it is not involving multiple births and they overcome them quietly with no recognition and not accept a TV show for millions to see and to give A “pat on the back” for a job will done. True we have no right to judge Ethan and Casey’s faith and beliefs, but it is hard for some of us to understand why this family just doesn’t accept the goodness they have gotten from God, especially their healthy babies and be gracious and just quietly lead their lives without the recognition of sharing their lives with everyone. It don’t get it~~

  33. JK says:

    I see we have some jealous child advocacy people from GWOP here. Ethan and Casey dont let nasty negative comments on your blog. These nasty people hate Kate. They dont hate any other fmily on tv just Kate. Dont let people tell you whats right for your kids. GOD will lead you. GOD bless you all.

  34. Ms_Laynie says:

    I cannot believe all the hatred here to a family most have never met. Ethan and Casey thanks for sharing your beautiful family! Good luck with your new adventures!

  35. Amy says:

    If you do trust Him, do not take the easy way DOWN. Please, give this some more thoughts. The Lord’s way may not always be the easy way.

    If you do end up taking on this deal, please, then, protect yourself. Get some lawyers that’s truly on your side, read all the fine prints. Make sure you can pull out as soon as you or any member of your family feel uncomfortable or forced in any way. The production company and network may seem nice right now, but to them money matters the most. Once the ball starts rolling, their $$$ would be more important than your lives. But it’s your own kids and your own family on the line!

  36. Jennifer says:

    You have a very beautiful family. Just as there are many reality horror stories, there are also reality success stories. Just look at the Duggars. Granted, their religion and lifestyle are vastly different than mainstream America, but their marriage seems much more intact than most.

  37. Tori says:

    Wow, I can’t believe the hatred spewed on here. You’ve read a blog and now you think you know Ethan and Casey? You think you are in the position to judge? You think you can question Ethan and Casey’s faith, marriage, parenting, answers to their prayers??? Not every couple is Jon and Kate.

  38. Victoria M says:

    As soon as I read in the Denton Record Chronicle of the birth of the quints, I was excited to see that you and Casey opened up your lives and started a blog. With the violence, injustices and war that the media reports on, it was a breath of fresh air to see two people from my home town that I grew up with, share their love, faith and family with the world. Little did I know that following the Joneslife, I would be spiritually uplifted. You blog has reached out to me and reminded me of the morals and values that I was raised with. And although the flame to my light had dimmed over the years, reading your blog and following your story made MY light shine brighter.

    I can’t begin to understand the negativity, and on some posts, hurtful repsonses. Know that out of the 45,000 people that have logged on to your site, you have made an impact on this one person.

    God blessed your six children by giving them you as parents.

    Congratulations to you and your family on this opportunity to share your journey. I know that your story will uplift many more to come.

  39. Walkbyfaith says:

    It can work. Look at the Duggars. Everyone keeps quoting the failures like Jon and Kate. But The Duggars are thriving quite nicely. There faith is astounding. If you have strong enough faith and strong enough values like the Duggars you can do it and it will work out. Keep living the faith!

  40. KS Dallas says:

    I, too, am in shock by the hateful comments.

    It is no one’s decision but Casey and Ethan’s.

    Yes, they blog so others can read about their lives – making it public.

    Yes, you are entitled to your opinion.

    However – NO – you do not have the right to be so HATEFUL!

    The scariest part is how many of you are claiming to be Christians? Well, your tongue is of the devil.

    Can you not communicate or express your opinion with out hate?

    Try this simple line “I don’t agree with your decision but wish you the best of luck”. Is that so difficult you Christ filled hypocrites?

    Casey & Ethan – I am not even going to say whether or not what you are doing is “right”. I can’t because I am not in your shoes. I cannot possibly know what you feel or where your faith is guiding you. I do, however, hope you ignore the nasty comments and I do wish you the best in your endeavor!

    Love from Dallas – KS

  41. Ellegirl says:

    All the nasty comments here makes me think of Matthew 10:22. I am very excited about this opportunity to let your light shine and I pray that you will be richly blessed by it!

  42. stevie says:

    Ditto to everything stated by Michelle. I am adding a few comments because I am not as nice as she is. To all of you negative, hateful people who are comparing this family to the Gosselins, Whitney/Bobby, Jessica/Nick: How can you do that when you don’t know this family? Do you really think these people would not have gotten a divorce had they not been on a show? Are you saying Ethan is just like Bobby Brown and Jon? Honestly! To all you hypocritical people who think science should not be involved in conceiving a child: just ask all the people alive today because their mothers wanted them so badly that they took fertility drugs to get pregnant. The reproductive system is the same as all the other systems in our bodies. If there is a problem and science can fix it, why not? Do you believe in birth control or do you think women should just keep having baby after baby because it is God’s will? I suppose you think diabetics should not take insulin and die and children with cancer should not be treated because it’s God’s will. To those of you who think this family is doing this for the money: As a first-hand eye witness, this family did not even know that money might be involved until months after the filming. They thought to have their adventures professionally filmed would be fun and inspiring. If this family gets money, whether it be a few dollars or millions,it would be WONDERFUL. Ever think how much it would cost to take 6 children to the dentist? To the person who said they should work to support the family: You said you follow the blog. Then you know that they do work and have worked very hard all their lives, sometimes several jobs at a time and they continue to work and go to graduate school. So why the RUDE comment? To those of you who say the children are being exploited: tell me how the children are being harmed. When they get older, they will look back at the videos and think they are sweet and hilariously funny and they will also be thankful their parents were able to afford to take them to the dentist and maybe even to the circus! They will look at the rude comments and wonder how people can be so hateful to people they don’t even know. These children’s lives have already been an open book on the blog. All my friends have their children on blogs for everyone to see. The only difference is they have not been asked to be filmed. To you people who say child perverts will be watching, etc., I imagine they will, as well as they will be watching other shows, other blogs , magazines, etc., so what is your point? To Casey and Ethan: Hang in there, dear people. I know it is hurtful, but you two are the BEST and BOO to you critical, know-it-alls. SO GLAD YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE WATCHING THE SHOW.

  43. stevie says:

    Can’t wait to see the show!

  44. Scarlet 2057 says:

    do you have 6 kids?!?

  45. Concerned says:

    The Gosselin’s thought the videos would be nice and cute for their kids too. Bet the kids won’t think so now. They show their private moments and also the unraveling of a family. Sad. Sad. Sad. It’s doesn’t matter if Ethan and Casey aren’t anything like the Gosselins. Filming donated plastic surgery, family outings and date nights. Sounds like a rerun to me. How many child actors do you know that are “normal?” These children will be exploited. If Ethan and Casey can’t handle the negative comments now just wait until the show airs.

  46. SK says:

    To CPMOMM–I’m really a kind person but your ridiculous comments cannot go unchallenged. So you work for Children’s Protective Services or are involved with a similar organization?–Please don’t WASTE YOUR TIME blasting this beautiful family. Every child should be so lucky to have these wonderful people as parents! Please concentrate your efforts on children who are neglected, abused and murdered by their parents. You don’t seen to have a clue about this family even though you say their blog has been a pleasure. The filming has followed all the events of the blog. So what is SOOOOO different? It’s just another form of media and will reach more people–more of a pleasure! If the family makes $$, HOORAY for them. They will need it!!! You also know the family works. You are SO RUDE. Also, their children are not being exploited. You are SO WRONG. Please read comments by stevie. They all apply to you. Also Sue cares so much because she doesn’t like seeing a wonderful family blasted by someone who doesn’t know them and doesn’t know what she is talking about. THAT’S WHY SHE CARES!!! Also, CPMOMM, Casey has a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Development and has taught kindergarten.

    To CPMMSANTOS–I said I was a kind person but I just cannot help saying this–We do have a right to free speech and a right to express our opinions, so here is mine–You are just plain crazy.

    CONCERNED–Who said they can’t handle the negative comments? I guess you made that up. The comments are posted, aren’t they?

    Here you go AGAIN, comparing Ethan to Jon. The show didn’t hurt the kids, Jon did!!

    Not all child stars (and who said these kids are going to be stars?) grow up to have problems. Many grow up to be happy, wonderful normal people. Gee, there sure are a whole lot of messed up people in this world who were not on television! As I said before–Any child who had parents like Casey and Ethan would be a very blessed kid.

    You think you know everything, but you don’t.

    Stevie and SK: Way to go!!!!! You both said it. :-) And Stevie, I was being nice in what I was writing, not what I was thinking that’s for sure! These negative comments are really making me mad.
