WE HAVE A HEART!

We just got the call. Kaidence is getting a new heart. The surgeons will go to pick it up tonight around 8:00 pm. The surgery won't be till after midnight and what a perfect Christmas gift. Kaidence will get a new heart on her 10 month Birthday. As you pray for Kaidence, please be sure to pray for the family that gave us this most beautiful gift. My heart breaks for them but I hope that they can feel of the love and gratitude we have for them. Merry Christmas. We will update through the night.

Shauntelle,
I appreciate Mike posting for me. Okay it's 1:00 a.m. and I just got the backs of all the bears sewen up, so I thought I would jump on the blog and see the latest.
I am so excited for Kaidence and for your whole family. This is the best Christmas gift ever. I am sure she is going to do great! This is what you have been waiting for. It probably doesn't even seem real yet!?!
While I was getting the update from Mike on my cell, my 6 year old son Nathan was in the car with me. He told me "Look Mom, God does answer my prayers". He might fight me even at this young age at attending church, but it's things like this that will help build that little seed of faith in him that will help him when he has to facer bigger challenges in life. He will remember this and know that God is only a prayer away.
Just like Sarah stated, there are many many many Angels cheering and watching over Kaidence and your family tonight, and I can only imagine Hope is one of them.
Hugs,
