Today is a very special day for my family. Four years ago we were blessed with the birth of our fourth child, Sarah. Two months later, she was diagnosed with biliary atresia. Thus began our rollercoaster journey that eventually resulted in a liver transplant when Sarah was seven months old. Our lives would have been so very different without her smiles, laughter, kisses and all-around silliness. We're forever indebted to the donor family for making a difficult decision. We may never have the chance to thank them personally but we are eternally grateful that they chose to have their own precious child's organs given to those who otherwise would have not survived.
Words are so inadequate in times like these and "thank you" can't possibly encompass what we feel.
Happy Birthday, Sarah!
