Seana said...

Just came across this site and am crying and praying. My sweet boy was born April 2010 and almost died the first few days of his life. For a month we didn't know from day to day if we would ever be able to take him home... but God met us there! And now he IS home, thriving, and a joy every day. Praying your journey has the ending you are hoping for... and a testimony to bring God honor and praise for the rest of your days.

I am so happy to hear this news. I signed up for the registry when a coworker of my dad's small child needed one. My younger brother has been in remission for a year and a half from stage 4 hodgkins lymphoma after his. I'm his perfect match if he should need me. You are all in our prayers.

I am so happy for you all. I just registered myself and my husband to become potential donors after reading about Kate. I've "known" you from TB since 1st tri and I think you should know you are a tremendously strong woman and mother. I can't even begin to imagine what you're going through--babies shouldn't be ill. I wish you, Kate and your husband all of the best things in the world because you deserve no less.
