The call...4 years ago

Four years ago today we received the call that would change our lives forever.  Around 9:30pm on a Sunday night we received a call from one of the transplant coordinators at Children's telling us that they had a possible liver for Ember.  We arrived at the hospital Monday morning and started waiting to receive word about surgery.  Here is what I wrote about getting the call. 

"The call....
Last night ar around 9:30m we got a call from Children's telling us that there was a potential liver for Ember and we needed to be at Children's between 8am and 9am this morning. Her surgery wont be until this evening if everything goes well. Please say a prayer for the Donor family and that this is a go. Once I know more, I will make sure to pass it along."

Today Ember is a happy and healthy little girl.  We couldn't be more blessed.  Please keep her donor family in your thoughts as I am sure this is a hard time for them.  While we are celebrating her second chance at life, they are mourning the loss of their little one.
