Our family was lucky enough to get five extra years of love, hope, fun, laughs, good food, and happiness thanks to an organ donor. Eric's mom received a liver from a stranger who we suspect had a liking for Mexican food.
Today, a little girl a few hundred miles away got the phone call every family on the donor list fears and craves: a liver waiting.
If you pray, pray today for Annika and her family. And pray for the family somewhere that, despite their grief, gave the second chance for life to someone they don't know.
