I can remember in the very beginning of our journey I was so thankful and grateful, even given the terrifying gravity of our situation that the organ that was impacted for our sweet little guy was the liver.
Why? It was something we help fix, we could do live organ donation, we had a little control - but it was something.
I remember telling myself I could not imagine Brodie having an issue with an organ that I couldn't give, that would be so devastating and constricting. And yet parents rise up all over the time, battle, conquer and their littles defeat ALL odds and ROAR back to life.
These littles are able to do this because of the selfless gift of life - paying it forward from another family in their time of grief. That is the only way.
There is a family here in Cleveland right now who was blessed with a beautiful baby girl, Emma on 11/07 - she was 6LBS & 10 OZ of straight LOVE.
She made a little boy a big brother, a Mommy & Daddy so proud to be a family of 4.
Sweet Emma was diagnosed with Pulmonary Atresia with IVS & Hypoplastic Right Ventricle (HRHS).
This sweet family now find themselves in the Cleveland Clinic Children's PICU - Emma has already had a major surgery - a BT Shunt was placed to help her continue to live.
She has had some complications and is in critical condition and on life support.
8 day old Emma has an incredible chance to live.
A heart transplant.
This is the only option for sweet Emma to have 2nd chance at life.
