Taylor's gift

My friend Viviana just shared a video with me. It was about a young girl's family who chose to donate her organs when she died in a skiing accident

. I cried watching a video of the parents meeting the woman who got their daughters heart. You can watch the video here be prepared to cry.

 What a amazing gift they gave five people at such a difficult time. Families just like ours benefited.

 It is a reminder of why it is so important to pray for the donor family everyday and the choice they face. They also started a organ donation awareness foundation called Taylor's gift. You can click on the title of this blog to visit the website.

This has given us hope during this dark time. I sat on the couch watching this video with Marty today crying and thinking about who our future donor will be?
