The Night Lauren Received the News Family
This picture of my son Michael that evening says it all.
I remember when we took this picture. Lauren and I took a walk that evening, then sat on the window ledge in the stairway. We had the conversation no parent ever wants to have with their child. It was on both our minds, the what if.........
Some people may say, why would you? Lauren and I have been through so much together, good and bad it needed to be spoken out loud. After our conversation, we both felt, I still remember a little more at piece with everything. I knew what my daughter's wishes were.
We then said to each other, "let's do this transplant, then go HOME TOGETHER"
For everyone that is presently waiting for your Gift of Life, stay strong, your day is coming. Miracles do happen.
