So thankful

I'm so thankful for this gorgeous girl.

I'm so thankful for the opportunity to give her a kidney - and hopefully a much longer life.

None of the children we met during our stay at Bear Cottage are likely to see their 20th birthday.  I know there are no guarantees about how long Ashlea will live, but I am so thankful that she has the option of a kidney transplant.

She has options.

Most of the children we met last week are out of options.

I have a lot to be thankful for.

I'm thankful that you have Ashlea too. She is so beautiful and precious. You're blessed to have such a dear little person in your life. Parnee xx

PS - I vote Yes to an assistance dog.

It really puts things in perspective seeing other children like that. You are one lucky momma to have such a sweet girl!

Options are definately good!

Hugs for you both, and wishing you lots of success! Definitely a gorgeous girl.

What a beautiful picture of your girl! So glad she has that option too, and praying for many, many more years with your precious girl!

"Love Ella" has suddenly vanished from the blogosphere. Does anyone know if it's changed address?

Deb - I didn't realise it had vanished until your comment. I will see what I can find out.
