Corrie, along with her sister Caris and I had the best time delivering the Pajama’s for Corrie’s Pajama Drive to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta today.
We were greeted by our new friends from CHOA Jessica & Mary, along with Danielle, and Claudia who feature stories on USA Today Humankind Online. They filmed Corrie and I making our deliveries and making new friends on the liver floor.
We met a little guy named Samuel who has kidney issues and a sweet little one from China named Hope who is currently waiting for her new liver. Hope’s dad was familiar with Corrie’s Story so it was fun to get to connect and let them see there is lots of life to be lived after transplant.
We then found our friend Margaret Rollins’ parents and got to hear that Margaret is doing great after having the left lobe of her liver removed and given to her daughter Adeline who is in surgery all afternoon and evening getting her transplant.
Day’s like today remind me just how far we have come and how precious life truly is.
The flag flies outside of CHOA and it says An organ transplant is saving the life of a child today. Thanks to the gifted medical teams at CHOA, donor families and lots of prayers, kids like Corrie and Adeline get to grow up, thrive, and be walking miracles that goodness along with an abundant life still exists.
Thanks friends for being a part of our story and helping us give back. Your prayers and gifts truly have made a difference in the lives of many children and families today and I can’t thank you enough.
