Thank you!!!! / Amy Forster
I received a link to your story from GMA and after watching, came to see your beautiful tribute to your sweet baby. I find myself sobbing as I cannot even begin to imagine what you have gone through. I have 5 children, and as a I read what you have written, I know you feel the same way about your children that I feel about mine, and I ache for you in your loss. I have a 3 year old son who often asks to ride in the booster carseat we have in our vehicle that our 7 year old son has used. We have let him many times, but from this moment forward, he will return to using his 5 pt harness seat. We purchased one for him 2 years ago that is designed to be used up to the higher weight limit for that very reason, but I have let my guard down and have not stopped to think about the danger of letting him ride in that booster seat. Thank you so much for giving me the chance to remember the importance of using a safer seat! You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you for using this tragedy to help others, Kyle must be smiling down on you!! Close

I just wanted to say that I am very sorry for the loss you suffered. I saw your story on GMA and was moved and after reading about kyle couldn't stop crying. I know only small fraction of the pain you may have felt that day as just last July my children and I were on our way to see their dad in Buda, Tx. (we were leaving Austin) to suprise him for a dinner date. We were the ones suprised. Upon entering the freeway I saw a car driving in front of me on the frontage road and for some strange reason she felt the need to try to exit on to the freeway as well. This lady not only hit me once but twice knocking my car almost into interstate traffic I know it was but God's unmerciful grace that allowed my car to stop right on the white line just before an 18 wheeler was to speed by. That instant fear of should I turn around? what would I see? my kids, who are normally being typical kids were completely silent. I turned to make sure everyone was okay as the driver had hit us from the side and then again in the back. But God, they were okay. Afraid but okay. I only suffered minor injuries(neck and back)It was discovered at the scene that the driver(a woman)was drunk and had a bottle of alcohol still in her car that she had been drinking on and was traveling with a ten year old child herself. When I read your story it triggered back alot of those feelings that I felt that day especially considering my daughter rides in a booster seat beacuse of weight issues has outgrown the standard toddler seat. I always kept thinking what would have happened if that truck would have hit us. although she was in her seat the impact of the initial crash had already caused her seat to tilt toward the window. I thought the soulutionwas to strap her in just the seat belt after that beacuse the booster definetely proved to be faulty and of course I threw it out. I now know thanks to your story(unfortunate how we had to learn about it)that I have another option. The next time you talk to your beautiful son Kyle tell him thank you for me and let him know his death was not in vain. may God bless you always and continue the crusade. Close

thank you so much for saving another child! Because of what you have gone through, we are looking into the 5 pt. harness seat for our youngest child, age 6. I saw your story on news show, after my boys left for school....and I cried, and it bothered me the entire day! Amazing is a tiny portion of what you have done for "Kyle's legacy." You have changed and saved more lives than you can imagine! Never doubt what you did not know......YOU ARE AN AMAZING FAMILY, AND WALK VERY PROUD,AND KNOW THAT OTHERS APPLAUD YOU, WITH A STANDING OVATION! Thank you, so much, again and again`

To The Miller Family, I can only imagine the pain you have endured during this tragedy. This is the first time today (Oct.1) hearing or reading about your tragedy and I would first of all like to offer my condolence. Secondly, I wish to Thank you and your family for sharing such valuable information with so many unaware individuals. I have only 1 child and even if I had more than one, I don't think I could bare losing one or any. What I'm trying to say MILLER FAMILY is that you are remarkable and I really admire you for the strength that you have shown inspite of your situation. stay strong and continue to hold on to your memories,photos and love you have for your son and remember, ANOTHER ANGEL HAS GOTTEN HIS WINGS!! Finally, I would like to know if I could be assisted in receiving one of the booster seats? I am not able to purchase one for my 4 year old daughter and I definetly are in need of one. So if you could please tell me how to go about getting one through the foundation that was mention? Close
Yesterday I was really thinking about buying my 3 year old son a booster seat, and I had doubts about his safety. Then this morning I saw your story on GMA, and you answered all my questions. Thank you for getting your story out there, for other families. I am so sorry for your lost.

Thank you so much for sharing your story!! I also saw the preview on Good Morning America and looked up the video on youtube to see the whole thing. I've been looking at the websites on your sone and other children that died prematurely in the same situation. I've also been looking at the car seats and am going to have mine inspected. I am so so sorry for your loss, my little boy is 27 months and I couldn't imagine what it would be like to loose him, GOD FORBID! Your little boy did not die in vain, he's the guardian angel to many children who's parents will now be educated because of you. My little one rides in a 5-point harness convertible but I'm going to turn it to the rear again for his safety and I'm looking at getting a Britax THANK YOU SO MUCH- Sandra, Galveston, Texas Close

Thank you so much for educating us on the 5-point harness carseat / Heather Sanchez
I saw your story on GMA this morning and instantly broke down in tears. I have spent several hours today reading about Kyle on different websites. He is such an amazing and beautiful little boy. And I am so sorry that his life was taken because of something that could have been prevented. Thank you so much for your advice on the 5-point harness carseat. I have a 3 and 5 year old that uses a booster however it is not a 5-point. Today I am going to buy 2 new carseats that have this feature before I pick up my kids. My heart goes out to your family and Kyle will forever be in my mind and heart.
I am truly touched by your writings about Kyle. I couldn't stop the tears. I have 3 young children, I couldn't imagine what you are still going through. It must be so hard. God won't let you down, we will pray for for you and you family. Through this Kyle has already touched so many of us. It made me think twice about my kids safety. We are in the car more than we are at home with all the activities. You have made me think twice about car seat safety and we are not taking it lightly. Thank you. We will continue our prayers.
God Bless, Dayleen Weaver & family Gardnerville, Nevada.

I saw your story on GMA this morning and then researched your story on the web. Tears filled my eyes. Kyle seemed like an amazing beautiful little boy. I can't imagine the pain you must be going thru. I look at my 2 yr old boy and 4yr old girl and tears come to my eyes just thinking of such a tragedy. I wish there were these amazing heartfelt words that could take your pain away. However, as well all know no words can take the place of Kyle. Thankyou so much for the life saving information. We have had our daughter in a booster seat for awhile now. I keep telling my husband i don't think this seat is safe if we were to get in an accident. He basically blows me off and says it's fine and we don't have the money to buy a diffent one. You truely are doing something amazing not only getting the word out but actually giving people who can't afford it car seats. You could be truely saving thousands of childrens lives. I am so sorry it couldn't of been Kyle's. Godbless you all. Close

I am so terribly sorry for your loss. I first heard of Kyles story this morning on Good Morning America. I immediately got on the computer and went to his site...reading your accounts of that horrific day brought tears to my eyes. My daughter is almost three and because she was tall...we just moved her to a booster seat because she no longer fit comfortably in her harnessed seat. Had I not seen Kyles story, I would never of had a second thought about my precious babies safety. I thank you so much for sharing your story. Knowledge is power....a gift you have given us all. I can only hope that knowing you ARE saving lifes, makes it just a little bit easier to deal with. God Bless You All!!! Close
I first want to start by saying Thank you! I had no idea about this car seat. My sons car seat is not safe at all. We are really going to start trying to save up for one. My son is the same age as kyle would be. He was born in April 2002 and i really makes me think that i need to spend more time with him. I need to laugh more with him and above all i need to try harder to keep him safe. I will pray for that hole in your heart to night! Thank you for being such a angel! Candace

I was so very touched by your story and cant imagine the loss of your sweet Kyle. I have three children of my own and take for granted how short all our lives are on earth, some longer than others. Reading your story has brought new information on car seats. My children are grown out of car seats but soon there will be grandchildren. You have strong faith that will help you and your family go on, but not ever forget sweet Kyle. God Bless your family Cindy Close

Hello to the family of Kyle -
I am a mom of a 3 year old in Indianapolis, IN. My friend in Florida just forwarded your youtube tribute and warning about safety harnesses.
First I want to say my heart aches for your loss. You have a beautiful little boy, and I'm sure a day doesn't go by that you don't think of that beautiful smile. He is an adorable little boy. My deepest condolences for your loss. Having a 3 year old myself, your website hit my particularly hard.
Thank you so much for sharing your story. I am relieved to say that our son still uses his Britax car seat and is in his 5-point harness. I will definitely plan to keep him in the 5-point harness as long as I possibly can.
Thank you again for sharing your story. My thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

Kyle - Mommy made a new video for the foundation and has posted it to YouTube. We have done some amazing things in your honor and memory - over 200 children have received safe car seats because of some amazing generosity. We have 380 children on our waiting list at the moment and we are trying so very hard to make sure that they are all safe as soon as possible.
Thank you for everything you are doing for us - for watching over my family too and keeping us safe.
