Four years ago today,
on Easter Sunday April 4, 2010
our sweet Miracle Mason was given a new beginning.
As the recipient of a very special donor heart he has been able to
ride a scooter,
go to school,
and much much more,
....... But, most of all he's been able to
just enjoy life!
And, that he does!
And that we get to do also!
Each and every day.....
enjoy life with our Miracle Mason!
Words can not properly express the joy and gratitude we have for Mason's donor family. If I knew who they were I'd personally love to hug them, thank them, and cry with them. I'd love for them to hear their child's heart still beating. I'd love for them to see Mason and how full of life he is! I'd love them to know how amazing we think they are for thinking to donate during a time that was most definitely heartbreaking for them. They have still chosen to remain anonymous, but maybe some day they will decide they want to let us know who they are. We will always hold a very special place in our hearts for Mason's sweet donor and family. We pray at this time of years and always that they may be comforted by our Savior's love as they miss their sweet child.
We celebrated today in honor of Mason's donor with our annual sending off of balloons into the sky and a yummy little heart cake.....
We are also very grateful for all the nurses and doctors at Lucille Packard Children's Hospital (@Stanford) and at Primary Children's hospital! They have helped us every step of the way on our Miracle Mason heart journey!
April is also "Donate Life" Month
Over 121,000 people in the United States are waiting for an organ transplant. Unfortunately, many of those people will die waiting because only about 46% of Americans are registered donors. Are you a registered donor yet? If you are not a registered donor, please consider signing up. You can find your state’s registry at www.organdonor.gov . Organ donation saves lives. We all know we still have our Miracle Mason with us because of organ donation!!
