What a little sleeping angel! Your family just is so special to me. Never met in person, but feel so much love for all of you. I am just praying & praying for the best for the transplant. You probably already know this since the FAmily community seems very in touch, but Alexandra our cousin had her transplant in Ohio in May of 2001 (I believe I am right on the date) & as I look back at all she has gone through with that & how far she has come she just turned 18 in April I am so hopeful for so much wonderful for Emma. I don't know if it would be helpful to talk to Di (Alexandra's Mom or maybe you already have), but I can pass on her number to you. I am sure you have talked to so many that have been through this & no 2 stories are the same. I am not very articulate sometimes so I am not sure what words I really want to say, but the bottom line is I am praying, praying, praying. Even if I don't have the words God knows the plan. You truly are a lovely family who I feel blessed to have gotten to know even if it is just online. Take care!
Hi Candice (sorry to take so long to respond, but I've been planning on it since I read this!). Thank you so much for your note. I feel the same way. I have never met you, but I feel such a connection with you and your sweet girl and feel like a FAmily member (since you are!). I can't believe Alexandra is 18! I think she was 13 yrs old last time I saw her. Her story is such an inspiration and something I'll be holding to as Emma goes through this. Thank you so much for your prayers and for always being such a comfort and support through all of this. I only hope I can do the same for you if you ever need it. (((hugs)))
