It is amazing that every time I hear of someone getting the second chance at life, how it jut floods my heart with so many tender and sweet emotions. It is almost like it personally happens to me all over again. Our little friend Madison is getting her new heart this afternoon. I still am amazed by those that give our children this gift.

Kaidence, Camden and I were able to "personally" meet her parents and twin brother on Thursday. We know them through their blog. What a kind family and how blessed they are to get a new heart for their little girl so quickly. Please keep them in your prayers this day, as well as those that lost their little angel.

Thank you to all of you that read this who have given this gift to another. Our hearts ache for you. Please know that you have given the most amazing gift. As a mom of a little girl who is alive because of another family like you, I can tell you how words are so inadequate for what you have given. It is hard to express because the most sincere and heart felt 'Thank You' just doesn't seem like enough. It will never be enough. But know that every time my little girl gets to do something like riding a tricycle, laughing with her brothers and celebrating another birthday.... You are ALWAYS in our hearts! My heart is full of such love and gratitude for you, although we have never met.
Each night as I listen to the heart of an angel beating within my daughter I am humbled, blessed and amazed by your gift.

I too get SO happy and full or emotion when I hear of another precious one getting a second chance. I know we will be there someday.

I've been following Madison's blog for a while... SUCH a precious little girl.
