Donor Letter

Posted Jul 09 2010 8:17am 1 Comment

Dear Love One,

I wanted to share the great news that my wife and I recently gave birth to twins, a boy and a girl. Our excitement at the birth of our babies felt incomplete until we could share it with you and your family. If it was not for your loved one, we would not be here today celebrating this miracle.

Last year we received the news that we were expecting twins. Our joy was immeasurable. However, a few months earlier we had found out my liver was quickly failing after 12 years with Primary Schlerosing Cholangitis. On the one hand we were ecstatic at the thought of having babies but we were also worried what the next few months would bring. Would I receive my transplant in time? How sick would I be by the time the babies came? Would I even make it to meet my kids? As each day passed and the delivery date slowly arrived, we became more nervous and scared.

Three months before my wife was due, we received the news that changed our lives. Thanks to you and your family, I was able to be at my wife’s delivery healthy and happy. I was able to meet my kids. I was able to hold them, to love them, and hopefully, to watch them grow up. Not a day goes by without me thinking about you and your loved one’s gift. I thank and pray for you everyday. Words can never express my true gratitude to you. I wish you well and much love.

Love always,

Wow. Beautiful... Can I share this on my blog? No worries if not, but I wanted to do a post on some of the people I know (and/or) follow, on how their lives have been affected by their gift, and this is just beautiful.

And, Congratulations on your 2 newest miracles. What a blessed year for you!!
